His game-winning hit made Chris Heisey happy to discuss why he hits better as a pinch hitter than as a starter. Yet, Heisey cannot figure out why.

Pinch hitter Heisey lined a walk-off RBI single to left-center field and the Reds beat St. Louis 4-3 on Wednesday afternoon.

"I can't really explain why I'm more relaxed pinch-hitting than I am when I'm up there in a late-game situation after being a starter," Heiey said. "It just seems to work better pinch-hitting, and I don't have any reason to explain that."
