The Detroit Tigers called up Andre Lipcius for his first taste of the majors on Friday.

It looks like he likes the flavor.

After a pair of at-bats off the bench on Friday in Chicago, Lipcius has his first hit of his MLB career. And it was a home run.

Lipcius, a high draft pick by the Tigers in 2019, took a 1-2 pitch from White Sox pitcher Mike Clevinger deep to left-center for a two-run shot in the first inning at Guaranteed Rate Field.

The right-handed-hitting third baseman hit .272 with 11 home runs in 97 games in Triple-A this season. He’ll likely play several positions in this season’s final month, and has a chance to make the Tigers next season.

Lipcius, batting sixth in the lineup on Saturday, between Kerry Carpenter — whom he drove in — and fellow recent call-up Parker Meadows, capped the four-run first inning with his long blast.
