Zimmerman On XM...Ryan Zimmerman was on XM's Inside Pitch with Holden Kushner and Jim Duquette this afternoon to talk about his hittin...THE KIDS CALL IT THE STREAK!!! (ed. note - "Paraphrasing here, since i was driving and taking notes whilst listening."):

Any Pressure? Zim - Not really, been fun, never experienced anything like it, just tries not to waste at bats...

Did his new contract help him to relax? Zim - Nice to get it done, wouldn't play any differently if he hadn't. Don't have to worry about contract or arbitration for 5 years, knows family is set for life...

Has it helped a struggling team to have something good going on? Zim - Weird to do something good individually when team is struggling, would trade it all for a few more wins. Nationals have lost 7-8 games late when they were leading, so he doesn't think DC is that far away...

Has Dunn been a good influence? Zim - Yeah, Dunn works hard, having him hitting behind him helps, so does a healthy Nick Johnson...

Any superstitions during streak? Zim - Only thing is cleats and batting gloves, usually changes them every few weeks, hasn't for the last 30 games...

How do you keep hitting if 1st AB? - 14 of 30 hits are in 1st AB - Zim - "I wish I knew"...Just worked out that way, nice to get i done in first AB and relax...

Other notes: Zim compares Zimmermann to LA's Billingsley. Zim notes, that the Nationals are only 30 games in...
