Cleveland’s Logan Allen held the Miami Marlins to a solo home run and struck out eight in six innings to win on Sunday in his major league debut.
Called up from Triple-A Columbus before the game, the 24-year-old lefty allowed a two-out home run to John Berti in the third inning. In addition, he allowed five hits and one walk, finished the job with three strikeouts and one walk on six innings.
Allen slammed his fist into his glove after Abisail Garcia received the third strike called to end the inning. As Allen left the field, he received a standing ovation and was greeted by his teammates in the dugout.RELATED
He’s the third rookie to start a game in the Guardians, without the injured Triston McKenzie and Aaron Civert in the rotation.
