Ryan Zimmerman went 2-for-4 with a home run, three RBI and three runs scored Thursday against the Reds.
Zimmerman got on the board with a three-run home run in the first inning, his 11th home run of the season. The big night helped salvage what was a pretty bad month for the 31-year-old, who is hitting just .227/.287/.412 on the year. Perhaps a good end to June will bode well for Zimmerman's July prospects.

Ryan Zimmerman hit an inside-the-park home run in the fourth inning of Sunday's loss to the Marlins.

If you saw this one coming, you should probably ride on your prophetic sensibilities and cash in all of the lottery tickets at your local convenience mart. It took a scary outfield collision between Giancarlo Stanton and Marcell Ozuna in deep center for Zimmerman to wheel around the bases. Both outfielders converged on the ball only to run into each other. They remained laid out on the warning track with the ball sitting between them. Zimmy scored without issue. Thankfully, both Stanton and Ozuna would recover enough to continue on in the game.

Ryan Zimmerman smacked a solo homer and a two-run shot in Tuesday's loss to the Tigers.

Zimmerman entered the contest with just one longball and was facing a demotion from the cleanup spot, but tonight's showing surely bought him some time. He took Michael Fulmer deep with a two-run shot in the fifth and then blasted a solo shot off Drew VerHagen in the seventh. It wasn't enough, though, as the Tigers held on after a three-run sixth inning.
