My First Time – Joe Nathan – April 21, 1999
The Setting – 3Com Park. San Francisco, CA.
From Nathan – ‘My first start was against the Marlins. I had got there the night before and was able to scout a bit – watch the hitters up close and all that. I did real well, seven shutout innings – they gave me the game ball and lineup card’.
The Boxscore – Giants 4, Marlins 0. Nathan gets the win, throwing 7 innings, allowing 4 hits and striking out 4 batters.
