Tampa Bay Rays right fielder Wil Myers was called up to be provide power and be a run producer in the middle of the lineup. Myers hit his first home run in the major leagues against the CC Sabathia of the New York Yankees today, a grand slam.

With count in his favor, 1-2 Myers launched a shot to right centerfield , that hit the top of the fence and center-fielder Brett Gardner‘s glove for the grand slams.
