Ben Revere ripped a rare home run in Tuesday's win over the Mets.

The home run even came off of a left-hander, as Revere took southpaw Antonio Bastardo deep with a solo shot in the seventh inning. Revere also doubled and drew a walk, scoring a pair of runs on the night. The speedy leadoff hitter is starting to heat up with multi-hit games in four out of his last five contests.

Ben Revere finally got going Thursday, finishing 2-for-5 with a triple, two RBI and a run scored against the Mets.

Revere actually had both of his hits in the top of the third inning, singling to lead off the frame before knocking a two-run triple to cap the scoring in the seven-run inning. It was just his second multi-hit outing in 12 games since returning from the disabled list as he continues to try to knock the rust off. The speedy outfielder is batting just .123/.177/.211 in 13 games overall.

Ben Revere went 2-for-5 with a double, a triple and two runs scored Saturday against the Cubs.

Revere didn't have a single hit dating back to April 4 -- sure, a span of just eight at-bats -- before his leadoff double in the third inning. He added his first triple of the season in the seventh inning. Nationals manager Dusty Baker has batted Revere atop the lineup in two starts since he was activated from the disabled list on Friday, a good sign for Revere owners hoping he'll score plenty of runs and steal plenty of bases. He should get to doing both soon.
May 7 - 8:07 PM

Nationals activated OF Ben Revere from the 15-day disabled list.

Revere missed a little over a month of action with a strained right oblique. He's back in center field and leading off for the Nationals on Friday against the Cubs and John Lackey.

May 5 - 6:45 PM

Ben Revere (oblique) is not in the Nationals' lineup Thursday against the Cubs.

Revere has joined the Nationals in Chicago after finishing his rehab assignment with Triple-A Syracuse. There was speculation he could be activated on Thursday but it appears the Nats will wait until Friday to make that move. Michael Taylor will start in center field and bat leadoff. Revere strained his oblique in Washington's season opener on April 4.

Ben Revere (oblique) is expected to rejoin the Nationals on Thursday at Wrigley Field.

Revere played a full nine innings of center field Tuesday in his fifth minor league rehab game and came out of it feeling fine.

Michael Taylor and Jayson Werth are probably both looking at a reduction in playing time with Revere returning to starting center field duties.

Michael Taylor and Jayson Werth figure to lose playing time upon Revere's return to Washington's outfield mix.
