Marlon Byrd made a terrific first impression with his new team, clubbing a two-run home run in his first at-bat as a Giant in Friday night in Pittsburgh against the Giants. The blast upped the Giants’ lead to 3-0 in the first inning.

The Reds sent Byrd to the Giants on Thursday in exchange for minor league pitcher Stephen Johnson. Byrd left the Reds batting .237/.286/.448 with 19 home runs and 42 RBI in 388 plate appearances.

Watch him go yard at PNC Park in his new Giants uniform:
