2 MLB rookies throw beauties on Monday.


Both Ryne Nelson of the Arizona Diamondbacks and Hunter Brown of the

Houston Astros made their major league  debuts on Monday

Nelson allowed only four hits during seven shutout innings,

struck out seven hitters, and retired 17 in a row at one point

Brown struck out five batters in six shutout innings of work, allowing only three hits and one walk.

It was the first occasion in the modern period when two pitchers made their Major League Baseball debut on the same day

Nelson said he was quite anxious before his first game, but immediately settled down.

Reno-based meteorologist Amanda  Young of tional Weat  Service had previously warned that

a 'dense’ layer of dust may be as  much as a few hundred feet deep.
