McCann makes his homers count

James McCann's third career HR today was of the walk-off variety. His previous 2 MLB HRs were notable, too: No. 1 came on an inside-the-parker and No. 2 was another walk-off. McCann is the first player with 2 walk-offs and an inside-the-parker within their first 3 HRs since Tony Piet in 1932. (via Elias)
