For a guy not known for his power, Billy Hamilton is sure proving that he's more than just a speedy threat on the base paths.
Cincinnati's center fielder put on another impressive display of pop Friday night when he delivered his fifth home run of the season against Kyle Lohse and the Brewers. The blast came in the bottom of the third and gave the Reds an early 2-0 lead.
Bryan Price's crew would go on to hold off Milwaukee, 4-2, to effectively snap a three-game losing skid and to climb within six games of their division leading foe.
The Reds will hope to cut into Milwaukee's lead even more when they send Homer Bailey to the mound to counter Matt Garza in game two of the series on Saturday.
