Cabrera went 2-for-6 in Wednesday's marathon win over the Dodgers, hitting his 14th home run of the season.

Washington took leads in the ninth and 12th innings only for the Dodgers to tie it, but Cabrera's blast in the top of the 14th helped finally seal the deal. He's had a bit of a power surge with the Nats, hitting .240/.333/.452 in 29 games since coming over from Cleveland with five home runs and 14 RBI.
