Nationals rookie LHP homers on 1st pitch in majors
Nationals rookie pitcher Tom Milone homers on 1st pitch in 1st major league at-bat
By The Associated Press

WASHINGTON (AP) ' Nationals rookie Tom Milone has homered on the first pitch he faced in the majors, becoming the eighth big league pitcher to accomplish the feat.

Milone, called up from Triple-A Syracuse before the game, connected for a three-run shot off New York Mets right-hander Dillon Gee in the second inning Saturday night.

Excited new teammates in the Washington bullpen jumped up and down as the ball sailed over their heads behind the right-field fence. The stunning shot gave the Nationals a 5-0 lead.



According to STATS LLC and the SABR Home Run Log, Milone is the eighth pitcher to homer on the first pitch he saw in the majors. The last to do it was Adam Wainwright for St. Louis on May 24, 2006.
