New York Mets prospect Michael Conforto smashes his first career MLB home run tonight against the Tom Koehler and the Miami Marlins.
By Robby Sabo
Perhaps only a Ric Flair-like “Whoo” after a job well done is the only appropriate action in this scenario.
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.
