Kiermaier hits first career homer in Rays' loss

ANAHEIM, Calif. – Tampa Bay rookie center fielder Kevin Kiermaier, in just his third big-league start, hit his first career home run Sunday in the Rays’ 6-2 loss Sunday to the Los Angeles Angels.

Kiermaier, the former Bishop Luers star, also robbed Erick Aybar of extra bases in the second with a leaping catch while crashing against the 18-foot wall in right-center. Kiermaier was recalled from Triple-A Durham over the weekend when Desmond Jennings was placed on the bereavement list.

Kiermaier hit his two-run home run off reliever Michael Morin in the seventh. The drive to left kept carrying until it disappeared in the lower seats in the left-field corner.

Albert Pujols hit two solo home runs off of Rays starter David Price to lead the Angels.
