Tucker Barnhart homered in a second straight game Thursday off the Braves' Shelby Miller.
Barnhart started just twice in his first 13 days on the Reds' roster following Devin Mesoraco's injury, but he's now played back-to-back games and homered both days. He's not really a better hitter than Brayan Pena, but he is the better defender and he might be the superior option to start in Mesoraco's place. Of course, the Reds still think they're going to get Mesoraco back soon, or something. Apr 30 - 10:04 PM
