Kendrick went 1-for-4 with a walk, a solo home run and a second run scored in Monday's win over the Mets.

After striking out three times against Jacob deGrom to begin the game, Kendrick made his mark against the Mets bullpen, walking and scoring as part of the Nats' six-run rally in the eighth inning and then swatting his second homer of the season to provide an insurance run in the ninth. The veteran utility player has filled in admirably to begin the season and boasts a .309/.345/.527 slash line. With Daniel Murphy (knee) just now heading to extended spring training, Kendrick has a window to continue playing regularly.
