SAN DIEGO -- Former Cumberland Bulldog Luis Martinez made his Major League debut Friday night, and less than 24 hours later, he found out he was optioned back to Triple-A Tucson.
Martinez pinch-hit for Kyle Phillips in the seventh inning and finished the game at catcher, going 0-for-2 at the plate.
"It was a dream come true," he said. "Finally what I've been working for my whole life, finally happened last night. I was fortunate enough to make good contact both times, but unfortunately didn't get lucky enough to drop anywhere. But I felt great at the plate, behind the plate as well."
