Jason Heyward homered in a second straight game Monday as the Braves beat the Pirates 7-6.

It was a nice day for the reloaded Braves' outfield. Justin Upton went 2-for-3 with a homer, while B.J. Upton went 2-for-3 with a double and a steal. Heyward hit second again today, and it seems clear that he's penciled in for that spot in the regular season. It won't help his RBI numbers, but it will get him a few more at-bats and he may threaten to lead the NL in runs scored.
