SAN DIEGO -- During the Reds' 6-5 win over the Padres on Saturday, it was a booming home run to left-center field by Chris Heisey that snapped a 3-3 tie. It was Heisey's first homer since June 22 vs. the Twins at Great American Ball Park.
Heisey, who did not start on Sunday, entered Sunday with only three home runs and 19 RBIs over 220 at-bats. Last season he had 18 homers and 50 RBIs in 279 at-bats.
"It's been a little while," Heisey said. "Even the couple of home runs I had, they were home runs, but I didn't really get them as good as I got that one. It was good to finally really run into one, especially at a ballpark like this. You knew you had to get it pretty good to get it out of here in center field. It felt really good."
