White Sox rookie outfielder Jacob May was playing pretty shallow and immediately took off running towards the warning track. Except May never really had a chance to make a play on this one. He dove and tried to stretch out far enough to at least knock the ball down. Instead he watched as it bounced off his glove and toward the wall away from him.

The timing was there, the accuracy was not. Dozier slid in easily as catcher desperately reached back for a late tag.

Take a listen to @BrianDozier dash around the bases! The inside the park home run has @Twins up 1-0 over @whitesox heading to the 6th inning

This shouldn’t be uncommon for either the Twins or White Sox. The last time Minnesota notched an inside-the-park homer was last season when hit one off in his final start with Chicago.

Dozier’s trip around the bases was the only run starter allowed in six innings.

Don’t worry White Sox fans, help is on the way — eventually.
