Tucker Barnhart has been an incredibly steady presence for the Cincinnati Reds during this 2017 season. As Devin Mesoraco has battled injuries during the season, Tucker’s again taken on the large load of being the team’s everyday catcher, and he’s provided some of the absolute best defense behind the plate in the process despite and revolving door of pitchers on the mound.

He’s hit plenty decent, too, albeit largely from the left side of the plate. That made his 3-run blast as a right-handed hitter in tonight’s tussle that much more impressive, as he entered play having hit just .185/.239/.249 in 208 career big league PAs as a righty. All told, he had a 2 for 3, 3 ribbie evening – including a walk – which is plenty enough to warrant tonight’s JNMHSotG. Congrats, Tucker.

Honorable Mentions are due to: Jesse Winker and Jose Peraza, who each had 2 hits, a walk, and scored a run (with Peraza netting 2 walks); Joey Votto, who walked and singled; and Austin Brice, who fired two scoreless innings in relief.
