4/8 Colvin gets 1st ML homer
Tyler Colvin may make it hard to keep him out of the lineup. He made his first start of 2010 in left field on Thursday and hit his first Major League homer with one out in the second off Atlanta’s Tommy Hanson. Colvin apparently has picked up where he left off this spring. He ranked third in the Major Leagues with a .468 average. Lou Piniella has said Xavier Nady will get a start Friday in Cincinnati. It’s early, but it’ll be interesting to see if Colvin gets one, too.
