Not Your Typical First MLB Home Run For Dodgers’ Zach McKinstry

Los Angeles Dodgers’ Zach McKinstry recorded his first ever MLB homer on an inside-the-park home run.


McKinstry was pinch-hitting in the top of the 8th inning when he managed to put the Dodgers ahead with one swing of the bat. Colorado Rockies’ left-fielder, Raimel Tapia, appeared to have a play on the ball but did not manage to complete the catch. Tapia also looked confused to see the ball back in play after going into the left-field wall.

The home run was the first for any Dodgers player this year. I am sure McKinstry would have preferred to crush it out of the park and to take a nice easy jog to enjoy his first big league home run. However, I have no doubt that he willn ever forget that rush.
