Porcello hitting facts
Rick Porcello is the first Tigers pitcher to get a hit in his first Major League at-bat since Zach Miner doubled at Milwaukee on June 20, 2006. But that’s just the start. He’s the first Tigers pitcher with a multi-hit game since Jeff Weaver had two on June 23, 2002 at Florida.
He’s also the first Tigers pitcher with a multi-RBI game in the DH era. No Tigers pitcher had multiple RBIs in a game since Joe Coleman drove in three runs at Boston on Sept. 21, 1972.
