Former 'Hoo Derek Fisher Homers in MLB Debut

Former 'Hoo Derek Fisher Homers in MLB Debut”

As exciting as the idea is of Fisher hitting the ball like this in the majors, remember that he is a rookie and there is a learning curve. The wait for No. 2 was even shorter.

"Something you can dream of", he said. "I can't say I would expect to have something like that on my first night but definitely glad it happened".

The former first-round draft pick was making his debut with the Astros. Two pitches later, Jake Marisnick hit a pitch into almost the same spot to extend the lead to 6-1.

Fisher became the first player to record his first two big league hits in the same inning since Adam LaRoche in 2004. Before the nine-run frame was over, Fisher would also single to drive in another run and score for the second time.

"They put together some good at-bats, and that's a good hitting team", said Cashner, who allowed four runs on 10 hits and one walk with four strikeouts over four-plus innings.

The Astros sent 13 batters to the plate in the inning to salvage the series finale. Dillon Gee plunked Marisnick before George Springer added a two-run double to make it 13-1. He ran into trouble in the fifth when Jonathan Lucroy started the inning with a single. Center fielder Jake Marisnick followed with his seventh homer as the ensuing six batters reached base for the Astros (45-22), two against Jeffress and four against right-hander Tony Barnette.

Mariners 6, Twins 4: Mitch Haniger and Mike Zunino homered against Ervin Santana early, and visiting Seattle held off Minnesota.

Martes allowed one run, three hits and two walks with seven strikeouts.

The Rangers started the sixth inning with Jeremy Jeffress on the mound.

The University of Virginia alum was batting.335 with 16 homers, 45 RBIs and 42 runs scored in 60 games for the Grizzlies ahead of Wednesday's promotion. Simmons fell to one knee to hit his seventh home run and ruined the major-league debut of NY right-hander Ronald Herrera.

Banister on Gallo's home run: "That one was real far".

Blue Jays 7, Rays 6: Russell Martin hit a tiebreaking home run in the bottom of the eighth inning to lift host Toronto over Tampa Bay.
