Jason Heyward connected on his eighth home run of the season in the Braves 7-3 victory over the Angels on Sunday.

After missing Friday's game with a hand injury, Heyward has managed to bounce back nicely from the ailment, having logged three hits and three RBI over his last two games. He is now slashing .255/.336/.386 with eight home runs and 26 RBI batting in the leadoff spot for the Braves, which should continue to result in a boost in stolen bases (9) along the way if he can stay off the trainer's table.
