Ryan Zimmerman's revamped swing continues to do big damage. After teammate Daniel Murphy suggested he needed to work on changing his launch angle -- Zimmerman hit the ball hard last season, but too often on the ground -- the Nationals' first baseman is hitting .387 and just belted his sixth home run to give the Nats a 6-3 lead in the eighth.
