Wander Franco hits game-tying HR vs. Red Sox for first MLB hit

Red Sox

The Wander Franco era has officially begun.

MLB's No. 1 prospect made his big-league debut Tuesday night vs. the Boston Red Sox and came through in the clutch. In the fifth inning, Franco tied things up for the Tampa Bay Rays with a three-run homer off Eduardo Rodriguez, the first hit of his promising career.

Watch:

This kid is going to be special.

Franco, 20, hit .315 with seven home runs and 35 RBIs in 39 games for the Triple-A Durham Bulls this year. The switch-hitting infielder is a five-tool prospect with the potential to be one of the top players in the game for a long time.
