ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) Mike Zuninos first home run for the Tampa Bay Rays was one to remember.
The veteran catcher was reinstated from the paternity list, three days after the birth of his first child, and hit a two-run shot that helped the AL East leaders stop a season-high four-game skid with a 6-3 victory over the Kansas City Royals on Monday night.
Man, I didnt promise that, but Ill definitely take it, Zunino said. You know, that was a very special moment in life and my baseball career. Its something Ill never forget.
