Robles went 2-for-3 with two RBI, a stolen base and a run Tuesday in the Nationals' 6-2 win over the Cardinals.
Robles reached base in three of his four plate appearances on the night, smacking a pair of singles while also getting drilled by a pitch for the 24th time this season. The 22-year-old's tendency to crowd the plate has helped compensate for an underwhelming 6.1 percent walk rate, as his on-base percentage sits at a palatable .330 for the campaign. He'll be back in the lineup for Wednesday's series finale as the Nationals' No. 7 hitter and center fielder.
Robles went 1-for-4 with a two-run homer in Thursday's loss to Atlanta.
Like all but one batter in Washington's lineup, Robles went hitless against Atlanta starter Max Fried, but he salvaged a productive evening with a 405-foot home run off Mark Melancon in the ninth inning. The long ball was the first for Robles since Aug. 18, a span of 15 games. The 22-year-old has quietly put together a well-rounded line this season, hitting .251 with 17 homers, 58 RBI, 77 runs scored and 24 steals in 134 games.
Robles went 1-for-3 with a run scored and a stolen base in the Nationals' 9-3 win over the Marlins on Sunday.
Robles has cooled off a bit after catching fire at the plate in the middle of August while slashing .400/.472/.667 with two home runs and 10 RBI over a 12-game span. He's now hit a bit of a cold streak in his last seven games, going just 6-for-28 with no home runs nor any RBI during this most recent stretch of games. It's crucial for a speedster like Robles to be getting on base as often as possible, as he has the ability to steal a base and get himself in scoring position for the heart of the batting order to drive him home.

Robles was hit on his right hand while squaring around to bunt Friday, but X-rays were negative, with the extent of the damage being a broken fingernail. He will tough it out against righty Pablo Lopez and look to finish a strong month of August (.289/.375/.433, six steals) on a high note.
