Shaker Graduate Makes Major League Debut

Shaker High School graduate Tom Kahnle made his major league debut on Thursday afternoon for the Colorado Rockies.

The hard-throwing righty worked 1.2 innings in relief against the Miami Marlins, allowing one run on one hit. He had one walk and recorded his first major league strikeout.

The strikeout came on his first major league batter, as he k’d Reed Johnson. He then ended the bottom of the sixth by getting Christian Yelich to ground out to short.

In the seventh he got Jeff Baker to pop up before he walked Giancarlo Stanton. Casey McGehee then tripled Stanton home before Kahnle retired the next two Marlins.

The Rockies lost 8-5 after closer Matt Belisle blew the save, but Kahnle did earn the hold.

Originally a fifth-round draft pick in 2010 of the Yankees, Kahnle spent four years in the minor leagues before being taken by the Rockies in this year’s Rule 5 draft.
