Farmer went 1-for-5 with a two-run homer run in Thursday's win over Atlanta.

One day after batting leadoff, Farmer was moved to the No. 3 spot in the order and slugged his 11th home run of the season in the sixth inning against Josh Tomlin. Farmer has cooled considerably since his red-hot July and is just 5-for-27 (.185) over his last six games, but his two most recent assignments in the batting order suggest the Reds still have plenty of confidence in his bat.
