Rendon stayed in the game to round the bases, eventually coming around to score on a Matt Adams single. However, infielder Howie Kendrick replaced the former Silver Slugger at third base in the bottom of the inning.
X-rays on Rendon's left elbow came back negative, according to Jesse Dougherty of the Washington Post, who reports that manager Dave Martinez said the 28-year-old has a contusion and could avoid the injured list. He won't be in the lineup Sunday when the Nationals take on the Marlins.
Rendon's 17-game hit streak officially ended Saturday, as he went 0-for-1 with a hit-by-pitch before being lifted from the game. He's eligible to hit free agency this upcoming winter and is hitting .371/.451/.771 with six homers and 10 doubles to start the 2019 campaign.
Nationals general manager Mike Rizzo recently expressed hope that his club would work out an extension with Rendon - who's represented by agent Scott Boras - prior to him hitting the open market, according to Bob Trosset of NBC Sports.
