Nationals' Trea Turner: Steals franchise-record four bags Sunday

Turner went 1-for-3 with a walk and four stolen bases in Sunday's 5-1 win over the Mets.

With Mets starter Jacob deGrom and closer Addison Reed limiting the Nationals to four hits on the afternoon, Turner received the green light from manager Dusty Baker to try manufacturing runs with his legs. While Turner was stranded in scoring position in three of his four plate appearances and never ended up crossing home plate, his aggressiveness on the basepaths allowed him to set a new franchise record for steals in a game. With 26 stolen bases on the season, Turner is just three shy of the Reds' Billy Hamilton's MLB-leading total, which is even more impressive when considering that Turner missed nearly two weeks in April with a strained hamstring.
