Rene Rivera homers in blowout win
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Padres catcher Rene Rivera put together a strong performance Thursday, in a 13-3 win over the Cubs.

Rivera has been a solid option for the Padres behind the plate this season, hitting .228/.286/.436 with seven home runs in 149 at-bats.

Rene Rivera slugs fifth home run Tuesday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Padres catcher Rene Rivera delivered the only offense for the losing team Tuesday, going 1 for 3 with a solo home run in his team's 6-1 loss to the Mariners.

Rivera has knocked home runs in two of his last three games, but he was just 3 for 22 in the month of June before his recent three-game stretch. The catcher has hit .225/.288/.461 with five home runs and 16 RBI in 102 at-bats.

Rene Rivera earning added playing time
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Padres catcher Rene Rivera has been the more productive half of the team's catching duo with the bat, but his glove is the reason he has started eight of the last nine games, reports MLB.com.

"He's playing well and I like the way he's catching," manager Bud Black said. "He's doing a good job with the pitching staff and our team ERA is really good when he's catching."

Rivera is hitting .235/.293/.447 on the season, but his work behind the plate might be the most impressive thing about his season. Padres' pitchers have a 2.72 ERA with Rivera over the last 28 games.

Helping Rivera's cause is the fact that Yasmani Grandal is hitting just .183/.267/.358 while appearing in 11 more games than Rivera entering Tuesday.
