Detroit Tigers catcher James McCann recorded his first career home run on an inside-the-park homer Wednesday.
McCann, the Tigers' back-up catcher, hit a deep fly ball over the head of Minnesota Twins centerfielder Logan Schaefer in the top of the sixth inning. The ball bounced off the wall and away from Schaefer, allowing Nick Castellanos to score from first. McCann followed behind him and slid into home well ahead of the throw, tying the game at 7.
The home run was the highlight of a big day at the plate for McCann. He went 3–4 with 3 RBIs and a run scored to help the Tigers win 10–7. His RBI double down the line in the fifth inning also tied the game.
