Phoenix (Associated Press) — Dre Jameson couldn’t really put it into words how she felt when she arranged a gem on his major league debut.
“It was fantastic. I don’t really know what to say about it,” said the 25-year-old right-hander after throwing seven rounds in the Arizona Diamondbacks’ 4-0 win over the San Diego Padres on Thursday night. I will cherish her every moment.”
Jameson, who was called up Thursday from Triple-A Reno, gave up two hits — both by Brandon Drury — and walked one. He hit five – including Juan Soto twice – and had 10 base hits. He threw 90 throws, 62 to strike.
“It’s high speed, but he knows where to go. That was something he worked for for a long time,” Arizona manager Tori Lovolo said.
Kevin Ginkell, Joe Manteble and Reyes Moronta finished all three hits. Ketel Marte, Emmanuel Rivera, and Carson Kelly hit their fellow singles in Arizona.
Marty achieved his 11th home run this season, ahead of the fourth place on the pitch from Shawn Manya (7-9). Rivera followed two naysayers later with a high drive down the line in the left to Bullpen in Arizona on the 12th of the year.
Kelly added a single shot, the seventh, in the seventh inning from Nick Martinez to make the score 3-0. Christian Walker’s RBI song closed at number eight the recording.
Padres’ lead over the dormant Milwaukee Brewers in last place for the wild card in the National League was reduced to 1 1/2 games.
Jameson was the 34th overall pick in the 2019 Ball State draft. He was 7-13 with a 6.41 ERA and 1.49 WHIP in 25 starts, mostly at Reno in the attack-enhanced Pacific Coast League.
He didn’t have to worry about the rally on Thursday, and he doesn’t seem to be worried about anything else.
“I just marked an area with Carson and took everything else out of the picture,” Jameson said. “I was way ahead of the guys. When I got behind, I relied on weight to get ground balls and it worked out really well.”
Kelly, who grabbed Jameson during his owner’s rehab job at Renault earlier this summer, called his stuff “electric.”
“He did a phenomenal job. Stick to the game plan and make adjustments,” Kelly said. “Very impressive.”
It’s the second time this month that the Arizona Ramy goes seven rounds against the Padres in his MLB debut. Ryne Nelson did it in San Diego on September 5th.
Manaea debuted since September 3, gave up two solo crawlers and one more hit, Marte’s song in the first half. He did not walk with nothing and hit three.
On his last start, he gave up eight runs in 4 1/3 innings in Los Angeles. A goalless rest took place on Saturday against the Dodgers in San Diego.
“We gave him some time,” Padres manager Bob Melvin said. “He looked good when he came back against the team that caused him the most trouble.”
Manaea has the highest road time (6.10) of any qualified bowler in the Specializations.
Padres’ Juan Soto, Manny Machado and Josh Bell, Diamondbacks’ Emmanuel Rivera and Josh Rojas wore the number 21 Thursday to honor Roberto Clemente, the Pittsburgh Pirates Hall of Famer who lost his life on a humanitarian mission on December 3rd. 31, 1972.
Jameson is the fourth call-up for the Diamondbacks from the 2019 draft to make his debut this season. Corbin Carroll (16th), RHP Ryne Nelson (56th) and LHP Tommy Henry (74th) have all appeared in the majors.
