Wed, 26 Jun 2013 11:12:41 -0700
Atlanta Braves OF Jason Heyward had an RBI double in the fifth, a solo home run in the seventh and a season-high three RBIs all told on Tuesday, June 25. He's hit .307 (27-for-88) with five doubles, four homers, eight RBIs, a .365 OBP and a .500 slugging percentage in his past 22 contests, following a rough start to the year. "It's building," he said. "It's going to take time. It's going to require analyzing it, making sure I know what's going on, be very aware of how I feel up there and what I need to tweak. But it's definitely steps in the right direction."
Heyward homered against Kansas City Royals RP Tim Collins, a left-hander, on Tuesday. It's his first in 65 at-bats against southpaws this season and the first round-tripper that Collins has allowed in 2013.
