Former Bear Orf Homers for first Major League Hit
Former Baylor Baseball player Nate Orf spent parts of six seasons in the minors before getting his shot in the MLB when he was called up by the Brewers on Monday. And he was without a hit in his first two games.
That changed in game three.
In the seventh inning of Wednesday's game against the Twins, Orf hammered a 2-2 pitch over the left field field fence, making his first major league hit also his first major league home run.
It ended up being the deciding run in the Brewers 3-2 win over the Twins. Orf got a curtain call for his efforts. And while he may have appeared reluctant to receive such admiration, that wasn't the case.
"I didn't even think about it, I was just pumped that I got a hit. They started picking me up and that's when I noticed they wanted a curtain call and next thing I know, I'm in front of all the fans on their shoulders. So it was awesome," said Orf.
