Jarrod Saltalamacchia smacked a walk-off two-run home run off of Joakim Soria in the bottom of the ninth inning, part of his 1-for-3 effort with a walk on Sunday. Saltalamacchia is only 2-for-12 in July, but has driven in four RBI with those two hits. He has a .776 OPS this season.
Saltalamacchia has provided power from the catcher position, nine home runs in 141 at-bats, but he is, at best, in a platoon at catcher with James McCann in Detroit. He had six home runs in April, but only had one home run in May, June, and this was his first home run in July.
