3 Comments

Marlins pitcher Brian Moran made his major league debut on Thursday evening against the Pirates. He took over for Elieser Hern√°ndez to begin the fourth inning. After getting Bryan Reynolds to ground out, he became part of history as his brother — Pirates infielder Colin Moran — stepped to the plate. According to Elias Sports Bureau, it’s the first time since 1900 brothers faced each other in one’s major league debut.

Colin worked a 3-1 count but Brian won the battle. Colin fouled off a pitch for strike two before taking a slider for strike three.
