Kentucky’s former Golden Spikes winner is officially in the big leagues. Trailing 7-5 with two outs in the bottom of the ninth, Reed came to the plate with only one hit in his first five games for the Houston Astros. Reed surprised all, blasting a bomb into left centerfield.

Unfortunately it wasn’t enough to build momentum for a comeback victory, but it did get the monkey off Reed’s back. A minor league phenom, Astros’ fans were beginning to get impatient with the young slugger. Today he lived up to the hype, hitting the first of many homeruns to come.
