Corbin Burnes didn't wait long to make his pressence felt on the big league level.
The Centennial High School graduate who was called up Sunday by the Milwaukee Brewers made his Major League Baseball debut Tuesday and recorded a save in the Brewers 8-4 win over Miami.
Burnes entered the game in the bottom of the eight inning with the Brewers ahead 6-4. He pitched two scoreless innings, surrendering zero hits and zero walks. He struck out one.
"It's been a dream to pitch in the big leagues and to have my first opportunity come with great results was very exciting," Burnes wrote in a text message to The Californian.
Burnes was selected by the Brewers in the fourth round of the 2016 MLB Draft out of Saint Mary's University.
He won Brewers Minor League Pitcher of the Year last season, going 8-3 with a 1.67 ERA between Single-A Carolina and Double-A Biloxi.
With the win, the Brewers moved to 55-37 on the season and remained in first place in the National League Central.
