Former LSU ace and current Philadelphia Phillies pitcher Aaron Nola made is major league debut on Tuesday against the Tampa Bay Rays.

Nola pitched very well but gave up a costly solo homerun to Rays pitcher Nathan Karns in the 3rd inning which was the only run scored in the game. Per

Nola, who is the No. 28 prospect in baseball according to, took the loss, but he left fans excited about the future with an impressive showing.

The Phillies are looking for a light at the end of the tunnel, and Nola offered one in his big league debut. He threw 88 pitches (59 strikes), throwing his fastball, curveball and changeup for strikes. If this is just a glimpse of Nola's potential, the Phillies will be very happy they selected him with the seventh overall pick of the 2014 Draft.
Nola's line: 6 IP, 5 H, 1 ER, 6 K.

Here a clips of Nola first MLB strikeout and hit.

The Nola family has always been a very humble, respectable family. I can honestly say both of the Nola boys deserve every bit of glamour they are getting. Best of luck to our former Tigers.
