Did you know? Left-handed pitcher Tom Milone had a memorable major league debut for the Washington Nationals on September 3, 2011. Making the start against the New York Mets at Nationals Park, he retired the first 6 batters he saved, then hit the first pitch he saw from Dillon Gee in the bottom of the 2nd inning for a three-run homer, giving him a 5-0 lead.
