Kelvin Herrera allowed four runs, including three solo home runs, to the Braves on Tuesday.

It was Herrera's first hiccup of the season, and what a hiccup it was. Herrera was taken deep by Jason Heyward, Justin Upton and Dan Uggla in the eighth inning of a game that was tied when he entered. His use in the eighth inning, coupled with his ineffectiveness in the appearance, should pour some cold water on the idea that he's a looming threat to Greg Holland as the Royals closer.
