Detroit Tigers C James McCann went 2-for-4 with a game-winning, solo home run and two runs scored in a 5-4 win over the Chicago White Sox Sunday, June 28, and he joined retired OF Tim Salmon as the only players with at least two game-winning home runs in the first 61 games of their career.
Fantasy Tip: Despite the walk-off homer, McCann ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) hasn't been doing much this month. His big games are too sporadic to warrant consideration at FantasyScore.
