Parra went 3-for-3 with a home run, three RBI, three runs and a walk during a 7-6 victory against the Mets on Thursday.

It had been a rough start to the year for Parra, but he's turned it on since joining Washington. After three hits Thursday, including his third homer, he's now up to a .294 average through five games with the Nationals. He's raised his OPS nearly 100 points since his final game with the Giants, and it looks like Parra will remain involved with semi-regular starts against right-handed pitching.
