Wander Franco MLB debut: Baseball's top prospect hits game-tying home run for Rays vs. Red Sox ⚾
Wander Franco, Major League Baseball's No. 1 prospect, made his anticipated big-league debut for the Tampa Bay Rays on Tuesday night as they faced off against the Boston Red Sox in the first game of a pivotal three-game set. The Rays, losers of six consecutive games, entered Tuesday a half-game behind the Red Sox in the American League East race.
Franco walked in his first plate appearance, rallying from an 0-2 count by taking four consecutive pitches. He then flew out to center in his second. His third trip to the plate, however, will go down as the one everybody remembers. That's because Franco delivered a three-run shot to tie the contest at 5-5.
