Phoenix — Cody Clemens was 4 for 34 when he came to the plate in the sixth inning of a 3-3 game on Saturday night. There were two runners and he ran into Arizona Diamondbacks left-hander Joe Mantipley.

Clemens is a left-handed forward and in his short time in the major leagues, he only had five at-bats against left-handers. On the other hand, Mantipley never allowed a left-handed hitter a home run in 96 games.

Guess what happened.

Clemens launched a 1-2 curve ball into places in right field, his first major league home run, breaking the tie and sending the Tigers to a 6-3 victory over Arizona, their second straight win at Chase Field.

“Good time for a first,” Clemens later said, fresh and clean after a holiday baby powder, protein shake, and yogurt shower. “It was delicious. I never got there. I’m trying to figure out what my role is in this team… I got a roster application tonight, so I was going to try and do my best. can help us win.”
