Ryan Zimmerman's resurgent season continues to get more and more impressive.
Zimmerman hit his 34th home run of the season on Thursday night, setting a new career high.
His previous career high was set in 2009, when he hit 33 while slashing .292/.364/.525 with a .888 OPS.
He didn't get cheated on it, either:

WASHINGTON -- The Nationals have agreed to a $7 million, two-year contract with outfielder Howie Kendrick, a deal subject to a successful physical.
Agent Pat Murphy confirmed the deal to The Associated Press on Monday. USA Today was first to report the deal.
Kendrick, 34, hit .293 with seven home runs and RBIs in 52 games with Washington after he was acquired from Philadelphia. The versatile right-handed hitter got just three plate appearances off the bench in the playoffs.
In 12 major league seasons with the Los Angeles Angels, Dodgers, Phillies and Nationals, Kendrick is a .291 hitter with a .755 OPS. He's now primarily an outfielder for Washington after playing left field, second base, first base and other positions throughout his career.
Ever wonder how you can become one of the Washington Nationals' Racing Presidents or what it takes to get the job?
The team recently detailed the requirements and held tryouts on Sunday for the next group of presidents to carry on the 12-season tradition.

While the basic requirements are pretty standard — be at least 18 years old, have a high school diploma, etc. — the specifics are quite unusual compared with a typical job. Among them, presidential candidates need to be at least 5-foot-7 but no taller than 6-foot-6 and able to run from centerfield to first base in a 50-pound costume. Needless to say, those who were invited to try out had to be in pretty good physical shape.
So in bitter cold temperatures, participants raced against each other in a 40-yard dash with the 50-pound costume on. They also danced.
Here are some of the highlights from Sunday’s Racing Presidents tryouts.
