Trivino's MLB debut followed by a win
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.

Lou Trivino (Slippery Rock, Quakertown Blazers, 2011) was called up by the Oakland A’s from the Nashville Sounds on Tuesday.

The 6-5 RHP had a save in three appearances with Nashville and retired all 13 batters he faced, eight by strikeouts.

The former ACBL All-Star joins former Blazer teammate and current Toronto Blue Jay reliever Tim Mayza (Millersville, Quakertown Blazers, 2011) in the American League and will be the 109th former ACBL player to reach the Major Leagues.

In other MLB transactions RHP Kevin McCarthy (Marist, Sag Harbor, 2011) and LHP Donnie Hart (Texas State, Westhampton, 2010) were recalled to the Kansas City Royals and Baltimore Orioles respectively on April 13.

RHP Casey Lawrence (Albright, Kutztown, 2008-09) was optioned to Tacoma by the Seattle Mariners on April 14. Hart was optioned back to Norfolk on April 15 after not allowing an earned run in two relief appearances for the O’s.
