#Reds use the fourth, with Chris Heisey

Cincinnati Reds OF Chris Heisey is batting 4th today due to the late lineup scratch of RF Jay Bruce. Heisey has batted 4th in the lineup in 13 games, 2 of them starts. In 24 PA he has 3 hits, 1 run, 1 HR and 2 RBI with 2 BB and 6 SO giving him a .150 BA, .261 OBP, .300 SLG and a .561 OPS. Some people love him, some hate him and some really don’t care but I think we all can agree having him bat fourth in the lineup today is just crazy, especially after he just came off an 0 for 4 game batting first yesterday. I think manager Bryan Price is hoping he will come up big for the team today and many will say 13 games is way to small of a sample size to judge how well Heisey will do today. I hope they are right and he comes up big for the Reds today. Since it is Star Wars weekend at Great American Ball Park maybe Heisey will use the Force and hit some home runs!
