Pettibone Solid in Debut, Phils Beat Pirates in Series Opener

Jonathan Pettibone’s major league debut was a success in the Phillies 3-2 win. Pettibone’s Performance -Really impressive outing for Jonathan Pettibone. After the first few batters it didn’t look like he’d make it one inning, let alone 5 1/3. The rookie struck out six, did not issue a walk, and allowed only six hits. Two of those hits were solo home runs. -Before the game...
