"Definitely good getting that monkey off your back," Revere said. "My game is mainly hit line drives and hit the ball on the ground. I get in a lot of trouble when I hit the ball in the air. We were hoping we would win the game, but it was a good feeling."
Revere's home run drought marked the longest stretch to start a big league career since Frank Taveras went 1,594 at-bats from 1972-77.
"When I got to second base, I didn't know what to do, especially when I got to third," Revere said. "It's past me. I'll try and get 400 more."
