Every pitch, still nervous.”O’Hearn, a rookie who entered hitting .130 with three RBIs, hit an opposite-field homer on Reid-Foley’s first pitch with Brett Phillips aboard with two outs in the second.“(Opposite-field power) is something that has kind of got me here,” O’Hearn said. “It’s definitely something that has been one of my strengths.”O’Hearn walked with the bases loaded in the fourth to bring home Lucas Duda Jeremy Hellickson Jersey

At least defensively, we’re giving ourselves a chance.”Their last error was July 29 in the first inning at Yankee Stadium.TRAINER’S ROOMBlue Jays: 3B Josh Donaldson (left calf tightness) will begin running the bases this week.
