New York Mets prospect Michael Conforto, who was almost sent back down to the minors a couple days ago, smashed his first MLB home run tonight in Miami.

In the second-inning of a scoreless game facing Marlins starter (and NY native) Tom Koehler, Conforto laced a right-center bomb to give the Mets an early 3-0 lead. The shot came shortly after Kelly Johnson got on and Travis d’Arnaud picked up his first hit since returning from the DL.

As the two teams play on after three-innings, the game remains scoreless. Bartolo Colon has been workmanlike up to this point.
