New York Yankees prospect Rob Refsnyder recorded both his first career hit and first MLB home run in Sunday’s game against the Boston Red Sox

Refsnyder, ranked by MLB.com as the Yankees’ No. 5 prospect, made his major-league debut on Saturday and went 0 for 3. 

In the seventh inning on Sunday, Refsnyder laced a line drive over a leaping Brock Holt for his first hit and had a two-run shot off Alexi Ogando in his next at-bat. 

Refsnyder is the first Yankees second baseman in over 100 years to hit a home run in one of his first two games.
