(TSX / STATS) -- WASHINGTON -- The Washington Nationals exhibited such a display of power in the third inning Thursday that poor Daniel Murphy was lightly booed after flying out to center.

If that sounds harsh, consider that Murphy's out ended a string of four consecutive home runs by the Nationals. And for good measure, the next hitter, Anthony Rendon, blasted another longball to give Washington five homers in the inning on its way to a 15-2 blowout of the Milwaukee Brewers.

"What a team we have, what a lineup we have," Bryce Harper said. "It's super-special and a lot of fun to be part of that. When you have that type of talent in your lineup and momentum going, anything can happen."
