On July 17th, this blog speculated that Tommy Milone wouldn't be long for the Chiefs. I was wrong in that he wasn't called up until the end of season. Tommy debuted with the Nats against the Mets last night. Tommy won the game.
Tommy also hit a home run off the first pitch of his first-ever major league at bat. Only eight pitchers have ever done this. Ever. To sweeten the deal, it was a 3RBI HR.

Not surprised. On July 9th, this blog noted that Milone had gone into the game as a pinch hitter. On July 17th, he went 3 for 3 at the plate. (OK, one was ruled an error, but still.)
Tommy, Section 207 is going to miss you, but we're delighted with your success. Like we didn't know you'd make it!
