It was also a much-needed homer, as Heyward has increasingly been sitting for match-up reasons. Overall, he's hitting just .260/.302/.397.

The Cardinals went on to win on a game-ending error from catcher Jordan Pacheco in the ninth. Heyward's homer was his third in 10 games and fifth overall. He's had a miserable season, which is why he was batting eighth against a right-hander tonight, but he's still playing quite a bit better now than he did in April.

Jason Heyward went 0-for-3 with a strikeout in Thursday's loss to the Mets.

Heyward's one strikeout was actually on the nice side of things, as all five of his teammates hitting above him whiffed at least twice.

We hope for an upswing as the season rolls along, though we've tempered our expectations.
