True love is real, and it's Franmil Reyes gently kissing his bat after crushing a homer
If there's one thing we know about Petco Park, it's that the San Diego Padres play their home games there. If there's another thing we know about Petco Park, it's that it's not exactly a hitter's haven.
And he knows that. After crushing a go-ahead two-run homer in the sixth inning of Monday's game against the D-backs, Reyes took time in the dugout to make sure his bat knows he appreciates it and everything it's done for him.

That's a good bat, right there.
And speaking of Reyes' prodigious Petco power, this statistic from MLB.com's Andrew Simon puts his power show in perspective:

This blast to CF at Petco Park tonight was his 11th straightaway/oppo HR this season (out of 15 total). Nobody in MLB has gone deep more times without pulling the ball. pic.twitter.com/CyWNKc9wPw
Wow, Franmil. I wonder if his bat tastes like vanilla ice cream ...
Adrian Garro joined MLB.com in 2016. Throughout his travels, both Bartolo Colon and Vin Scully have placed their hands on his shoulders. Not at the same time, though. That'd be amazing.
