Mark Reynolds with game-winning HR

Cardinals 1B Mark Reynolds went 2-for-4 with two runs scored and what would prove to be the game winning home run for the St. Louis Cardinals. Living up to his reputation he not only went yard, but also struck out twice during this game.

Fantasy Impact: Reynolds' HR was his fourth on the season and he garnered his 19th RBI. With the loss of 1B Matt Adams, Reynolds has received significant playing time and is taking advantage of his opportunities in the Cardinals lineup.

Mark Reynolds had a nice day Thursday against the Brewers. He finished 2-for-4 with a double and a RBI.

Fantasy Impact: So far Reynolds has been everything the Cardinals have asked for and more. He's a career .220 hitter and on this bright young season he's going .330. Of course it won't last but, they'll enjoy it while he's hot.

Mark Reynolds started on Sunday verse the Reds. He batted 5th behind Jhonny Peralta.

Fantasy Impact: He had a relatively average afternoon going 1-3 with a K and a walk. Nothing worth rostering as he'll spell Matt Adams from time to time and gather some pinch at-bats.
