Cabrera paced the team with seven total bases in the 15-0 rout. He also had a double in the matinee, so he was 4-for-8 in total Sunday and raised his season SLG by more than 30 points. The 34-year-old is playing close to every day between first base and DH while batting mostly third or fourth in the order.
Cabrera went 1-for-3 with a walk and a solo home run in Sunday's loss to Atlanta.

Cabrera (foot) is starting at third base and hitting third Wednesday against the Phillies.
Cabrera is dealing with some soreness stemming from fouling a ball off his foot a couple of days ago, but it's apparently mild enough to play through. The veteran infielder is slashing .288/.368/.515 with four home runs and 11 RBI through 18 games this month, and with the slumping Carter Kieboom sent to the Nats' alternate training site, Cabrera should be the everyday starter at the hot corner.
Cabrera fouled a ball off his foot a couple days ago and is questionable for Wednesday's game against the Phillies, Mark Zuckerman of MASNSports.com reports.
He went 2-for-4 in Tuesday's game, so perhaps it's something that he thought he could play through but he is now experiencing enough pain to potentially sit out Wednesday. The Nationals' lineup should be posted early in the afternoon to clarify his status.
Cabrera is out of the lineup Sunday against the Marlins.
Cabrera started the past 14 games and had a .888 OPS with four homers during that stretch, so he'll receive a well-earned day off. Carter Kieboom receives the start at the hot corner Sunday for the Nationals.
Cabrera went 2-for-4 with a walk and a solo home run in Monday's 7-6 loss to Atlanta.
Getting the start at DH and hitting cleanup, Cabrera drilled his fifth homer of the year down the left-field line off southpaw Grant Dayton in the fifth inning. It was his first long ball hitting right-handed, as most of the switch hitter's damage has come from the left side of the plate, but that's been more than enough as Cabrera is slashing .271/.342/.586 with 15 RBI in 19 games.
Cabrera went 1-for-3 with a walk, a home run, two runs scored and two RBI in Friday's 15-3 rout of the Orioles.
The veteran infielder launched a solo shot in the seventh inning, his fourth homer of the year. With Starlin Castro (wrist) now on the shelf, Cabrera could see time at the keystone, but he was already seeing everyday duty between third base and first base thanks to his .276/.338/.603 slash line with 13 RBI in 16 games.
Cabrera went 4-for-4 with a walk, two doubles, two home runs, three runs scored and five RBI in Monday's 16-4 rout of the Mets.
Both long balls came off southpaws -- Steven Matz in the second inning and Chasen Shreve in the seventh. Cabrera has picked up right where he left off after being acquired by the Nats at the end of 2019, hitting .357 (15-for-42) through 12 games with three homers and 11 RBI.
Cabrera is out of the lineup Friday against the Orioles.
Cabrera was in the lineup the past two games and went 3-for-7 with a double and a run scored, but he'll take a seat Friday. Carter Kieboom will start at the hot corner for the Nationals.
Cabrera went 1-for-5 with a triple and three RBI on Wednesday against the Blue Jays.
Cabrera was held hitless through nine innings, but delivered the game-sealing hit for the Nationals in the 10th frame. He came up to bat with the bases loaded and two outs, and came through with a clutch triple to stretch team's lead to 4-0. Cabrera has collected five hits in 23 plate appearances this season.
Cabrera got the start at third base Saturday and went 3-for-4 with a home run, a double, two runs scored and two RBI in a win over the Yankees.
The 34-year-old took Ben Heller deep in the seventh inning for his first homer of 2020. Carter Kieboom is limited to DH duties at the moment due to a slight groin issue, opening up the hot corner for Cabrera. He'll have some intriguing short-term value in shallower fantasy leagues and daily formats after posting a .969 OPS in 38 games for the Nats last season.
Cabrera remained in the mix for the starting third base spot when spring training was suspended.
The veteran infielder was seen as the insurance policy at the hot corner in case top prospect Carter Kieboom needed more development time in the minors, but that appeared to be the case when MLB went on hiatus, as Kieboom was struggling both at the plate -- hitting .233 with nine strikeouts in 30 at-bats -- and with his defense after moving over from shortstop. Cabrera wasn't doing any better offensively in camp, going 3-for-22 (.136) without an extra-base hit, but his 13-season track record in the majors and .969 OPS in 38 games for the Nats at the end of last season carry a lot more weight.
Cabrera signed a one-year, $2.5 million contract with the Nationals on Saturday, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports.

The 34-year-old turned things around with Washington over the final weeks of the season, hitting .323/.404/.565 with six home runs and 40 RBI over 38 games. While Cabrera was effective with the Nationals last year, he'll likely battle for playing time at second base with Starlin Castro in 2020, but he could see increased action at third base following Anthony Rendon's departure if top prospect Carter Kieboom isn't ready to handle a starting role in the majors.
Cabrera is not in the lineup for Game 2 of the NLCS against the Cardinals on Saturday.
Cabrera will sit for the second straight game after going 1-for-9 in the NLDS. Howie Kendrick is starting at second base, with Ryan Zimmerman at first.
