April 19, 2018

Lou Trivino (Slippery Rock, Quakertown Blazers, 2011) began his MLB career with a hectic, but enjoyable 24 hours in Oakland.

Trivino learned of his promotion at a Des Moines, Iowa pizza restaurant late Monday night. On Tuesday evening he made his MLB debut with a scoreless ninth inning as the Oakland A’s defeated the Chicago White Sox 10-2.

On Wednesday afternoon the A’s and White Sox were involved in a 14 inning marathon affair. Trivino tossed three scoreless innings, the 12th, 13th and 14th. Matt Olsen’s walk-off single in the bottom of the 14th gave the A’s a 12-11 victory and Trivino picked up his first MLB win.

Tim Mayza (Millersville, Quakertown Blazers, 2011) recorded a scoreless ninth inning on Wednesday evening as the Toronto Blue Jays defeated the Kansas City Royals 15-5.
