In the NLDS, Howie Kendrick provided the biggest hit of the Nationals season with a series-winning grand slam in the 10th inning against the Dodgers.

Having that season, and potentially career-defining moment was already an incredible feat for the 36-year-old. But, he didn't stop there.

Going 5-for-15 with four doubles and four RBI during the Nationals four-game sweep of the Cardinals in the NLCS, Kendrick proved to be a reliable bat throughout. With that, he was awarded NLCS MVP honors.

October is where legends are made, and Howie Kendrick is the latest player to etch his name in the postseason history book.
