Watch Dawel Lugo hit his first career home run

Lugo’s two-run shot was Detroit’s first pinch-hit home run in over two years.

Dawel Lugo has been something of a controversial player in the Detroit Tigers system this year. Some like his hands and batting average while others — nah, let’s not go there. Instead, just enjoy this moment. Lugo hit the first home run of his career on Friday evening, a two-run shot off All-Star reliever Josh Hader.

Lugo pinch-hit for second baseman Harold Castro, and his dinger broke a long streak for the Tigers.

And one more, just for fun.

Congratulations, Dawel!
