Padres rookie Franmil Reyes hits first career home run
With the Padres down 6-0 in the top of the fourth, the 6’5″, 275-pound Reyes cracked an opposite-field two-run home run off Nats left-hander Gio Gonzalez. The home run was the first of the outfielder’s major league career.
The ball left Reyes’s bat at 108 miles-per-hour and traveled 398 feet into the right-field seats.
The home run has been the lone bright spot in what has been a difficult ballgame for the Padres. The Nationals have slugged three home runs off of Padres pitching in the first five innings.
The Nationals currently lead 7-2 in the top of the sixth.
