Entering last night's game against the Arizona Diamondbacks, Washington Nationals third baseman Ryan Zimmerman had a 26-game hitting streak.
After getting no hits in his first three at bats, Zimmerman hit a solo home run for his fourth at bat (eighth inning).
The Nationals won 2-1 and have now won four of their last five games.
Zimmerman will look to extend his hitting streak to 28 games at 4:10 p.m. ET today.
Forty-two players have hit safely in 30+ consecutive games, fifteen players have hit safely in 35+ consecutive games and only six players have hit safely in 40+ consecutive games. Of course, the record was set by Joe DiMaggio (56) in 1941.
