Cleveland Guardians rookie Steven Kwan hit his first home run as a major-leaguer on Thursday, a two-run shot off José Berríos into the first row in right field to make the Guardians' game with the Toronto Blue Jays a 2-2 tie.

Toronto's Vladimir Guerrero Jr. hit his seventh homer, also a two-run blast, in the first inning.

Kwan was named the American League Rookie of the Month for April, and his home run sent his average to .333 for the season. Known for his bat-to-ball skills, the 24-year-old has more walks (nine) than strikeouts (seven). He hit 12 homers in 77 minor-league games last season.
