Zimmerman named NL co-Player of the Week

Nationals third baseman Ryan Zimmerman, who is in the midst of one of the longest tears of his career, will share NL Player of the Week honors with Padres catcher Nick Hundley, MLB announced today.

Zimmerman hit .500 (12-for-24) with two doubles, three home runs, eight RBIs, one walk and five runs scored in six games last week. Zimmerman’s efforts helped the Nationals go 4-2 and win a pair of series against the Reds and Phillies.

Hundley also hit .500, with eight extra base hits and four RBIs in seven games.
