Ryan Zimmerman Is A Fan Of The Long Ball

Ryan Zimmerman has certainly developed a flair for drama. Attempting to muscle his way into the All-Star game, last night marked the sixth time in Zimmerman's career that he has hit a walk-off homer.

However, what has gone relatively unnoticed is that this was the Zimmerman's fourth multi-homer game of the season. According to Baseball Reference, Zimmerman has had eight multi-homer games during his career, which means that 50% of those happened during this season alone. Let's go to the numbers after the jump:

8 2007-08-04 WSN STL W 12-1 5 5 2 2 0 0 2 3 0 0 0.126

 

Two things can be noted from this info. The first is that multi-homer games for Zimmerman are correlating to wins this year, which was not the case in previous years. The second is that you can see Zimmerman really has a thing for Padres pitching.
