Aaron Hicks gave the Yankees an early lead Friday against the Tigers with an inside-the-park home run.

Hicks drove a Mike Fiers pitch off the out-of-town scoreboard in deep right-center field at Comerica Park in the second inning. The ball caromed hard past Tigers center fielder Leonys Martin, who retrieved it in straightaway center field.

Gary Sanchez, who was on second when the ball was hit, scored ahead of Hicks, who reached third base just as Sanchez was crossing home plate.

The homer was Hicks’ first of the season.

UPDATE: Hicks now has two home runs this season. He went deep over the right-center field wall in the sixth inning.
