McCann hits leadoff HR in 11th, sends Tigers over Astros

DETROIT (AP) James McCann hasn't hit many homers in the major leagues. But when he has connected, he's done it with style.

McCann's first home run was an inside-the-parker last month. His second shot came Thursday - a leadoff drive in the bottom of the 11th inning that lifted the Detroit Tigers over the Houston Astros 6-5.

"I'm not sure what I'm going to do for an encore," McCann said. "I'm hoping to play long enough up here to hit a bunch of normal homers, too."
