The Nationals dodged another significant injury Friday night after X-rays on Anthony Rendon’s right hand came back negative, Manager Matt Williams said. Rendon left after the fifth inning of the Nationals’ 6-0 victory over the Padres after Carlos Quentin’s smash drilled him in the thumb of his throwing hand in the fourth inning. Williams said Rendon is considered day-to-day.

“It’s pretty swollen,” Williams said. “We’ll see how he feels tomorrow.”

In the first inning, Quention ripped a two-hopper to third base. Rendon stationed his body in front the ball. It hit him in the hand and trickled away. Rendon gathered the ball and misfired to first base, the first of two errors on the night.
