Nationals' Ryan Zimmerman: Big day at plate Sunday

Zimmerman went 3-for-3 with a walk, a double, his first spring home run, three runs scored and two RBI in Sunday's Grapefruit League game against the Marlins.

He's caught fire after a rough 0-for-17 start, picking up hits in seven of his last 10 spring at-bats to boost his slash line to .259/.375/.444. There's still a lot of uncertainty around Zimmerman's ability to contribute this year, as he's seen his OPS drop for four straight seasons, but a strong finish to the spring would at least give the veteran first baseman some confidence heading into April.
