After popping the first homer of his rehab stint while batting left-handed as the DH Thursday night in Myrtle Beach, Ben Zobrist got right back to work Friday evening. Playing second base and leading off, a righty-batting Zo put the Birds on the board by driving a 2-0 pitch over the fence to lead off the home half of the 1st.
Say what you want about it being A-ball, but that’s not a homer-happy park and we’re talking about a 38-year-old who took nearly 3 months off. He’s now homered from both sides of the plate in consecutive games and is looking like the rust is coming loose pretty quickly.
