Chih-Wei Hu makes Major League debut against Orioles
Taipei, April 25 (CNA) Taiwanese pitcher Chih-Wei Hu of the Tampa Bay Rays made his Major League Baseball debut in Baltimore on Monday, the 12th Taiwan-born player to reach the majors.
Hu was called in at the bottom of the eighth after rain delayed play and managed to pitch a solid inning in cold, wet conditions.
Despite the team's 3-6 loss to the Orioles, the 23-year old pitcher performed well by shutting down three batters in a row with nine pitches, according to local sports commentator Tseng Wen-cheng.
In addition to his combination of curveballs and sliders, Hu's fastest pitch was a four-seam fastball clocked at 94 miles per hour (151 kilometers per hour), Tseng said.
After the game, Hu said he felt great and the only thing on his mind was to pitch well.
"This being my first game in the majors, I look forward to improving my game one step at a time," he said.
The right-hander, who has played in the U.S. since 2013, was the 12th and second active Taiwanese player in the majors after Marlins pitcher Wei-Yin Chen.
Hu was called up to the major league from his Triple-A Durham team on Sunday and was expected to play against the Orioles in Tampa.
However, despite getting warmed up in the bullpen, he didn't get to play in Sunday's game.
After his appearance on Monday, Hu added his mindset hasn't changed and that his only goal is still to pitch well in every game.
