Watch: Jose Lobaton Pads Lead with 2-Run Bomb Over Right-Field Scoreboard

Jose Lobaton has been very good off the bench this season for the Washington Nationals. When Wilson Ramos was out, Lobaton held his own at the plate in semi-regular duty.

Now, he’s back in his usual reserve role. Lobaton is a quality reserve, however—mostly because he can do this from time to time:

On a 3-2 count with one out in the bottom of the second, Lobaton took Texas Rangers starter Nick Tepesch deep into right field. The ball cleared the scoreboard in right for a two-run shot, extending his team’s lead to 3-0.

On the year, Lobaton now has two homers.

When everyone on the depth chart is contributing, you know a team is going well. The Nats appear to be on the right track following a disappointing start to the season.
