Logan Schafer made his major league debut in the seventh inning tonight, pinch running for Taylor Green and scoring a run at the Brewers took the lead. After the inning, he was replaced in the lineup by LaTroy Hawkins.
Schafer is still looking for his first major league plate appearance, but he's now scored his first major league run. He's the fourth Brewer ever to score a run without a PA in his major league debut, and the first since 1998. Here are the others:
|September 12, 1998
|September 17, 1992
|April 8, 1992
Bill Wegman also scored a run in his first appearance as a non-pitcher on July 5, 1986. He finished his major league career with a run scored but no plate appearances.
