Count Giants skipper Bochy among Rendon's fans

SAN FRANCISCO -- Like he was during the regular season, Anthony Rendon has been the Nationals' best hitter in the postseason.

Entering Tuesday night's Game 4 of the National League Division Series against the Giants, Rendon had gone 7-for-15 with an RBI in the series, and had played flawless defense, his play making an impression on Giants manager Bruce Bochy.

"He's a good player," Bochy said. "Great player. Solid all around. Tough out. [He is a] very good third baseman. Runs well. This guy is a really nice player. He probably could play anywhere in the infield, too. I think Washington has a guy they are going to keep for a long time."
