Jose Reyes has been popping up more than the Mets would like recently, so before yesterday’s game he took extra batting practice with hitting coach Dave Hudgens.
The result was a solo home run in the third inning while batting right handed.This was his first home run batting right handed all year. Reyes was also content with his long fly out to center field that reached the warning track in the seventh inning.
Reyes told the post NY Post
“From the right side I’m fine. That’s why the ball I hit lefty to center field felt very good. I made some adjustments there and hope to carry that into [tonight].”
Despite having a slow second-half start, Reyes leads the National League in hits with 142 and in batting average with .339.
