Pasquantino hits unusual 1st MLB homer, Royals beat Tigers

DETROIT (AP) Vinnie Pasquantino took a most unusual path to the plate on his first big league home run - a furious sprint, a desperate slide and even a tag.

Pasquantino and Hunter Dozier hit back-to-back homers, leading Brad Keller and the Kansas City Royals over the Detroit Tigers 3-1 on Friday night.

Playing his third game in majors, Pasquantino was 0 for 6 overall when he hit Michael Pineda's first pitch of the fourth inning to deep right. The ball hit the top of the fence, bounced off a railing and back onto the field.
