Ryan Zimmerman hit his 34th home run of the season in Thursday's loss to the Braves.

Zimmerman tomahawked a high R.A. Dickey knuckleball, keeping it inside the left field foul pole for his 34th homer of the year -- a new career high -- in the second inning. It was his only hit on the night. What a resurgent year it's been for the 32-year-old, who's hitting .302/.357/.563 with those 34 homers, 103 RBI and 87 runs scored through Thursday.

Zimmerman finished the night 3-for-5 and is slashing a robust .301/.356/.561 with 33 homers and 99 RBI in an impressive campaign that will almost surely net him National League Comeback Player of the Year honors.

That's quite a turnaround from last year when he finished with a .218 batting average, 15 home runs and 46 RBI.

Ryan Zimmerman went 0-for-3 with a walk in Saturday's loss to the Padres.

Zimmerman was far from alone in his offensive utility, as the Nationals finished with just three hits. Slight stumble aside, the veteran slugger has ripped off a gorgeous campaign to date. He owns a .310/.360/.590 triple-slash with 29 homers and 86 RBI across 111 games played.

For the season as a whole, the veteran first baseman is hitting a gaudy .310/.360/.593 with 29 homers and 86 RBI in 109 games played.
