Baker talks to Heisey about bunt attempt
CINCINNATI -- Reds manager Dusty Baker had a conversation with Chris Heisey about his bunt attempt in the fifth inning of Saturday night's game.

Heisey, who had homered and singled in his previous two at-bats, attempted a bunt with one out and runners on first and third. Heisey was easily retired by Rockies pitcher Jeremy Guthrie, who threw on to first baseman Todd Helton.

Heisey has been hot, hitting .405 in his past 12 appearances with four doubles and a homer. Baker respected Heisey's intention, but preferred for him to be more aggressive in that situation.

"He was trying to do something, which is better than trying to do nothing," Baker said. "That's the time we wanted to blow the game out. You're in a situation to drive in runs there."
