Scott Oberg could not have written the script any better.
The former Tewksbury High and UConn star pitched one inning of shutout relief and was credited with the victory in his Major League debut, helping the Colorado Rockies beat the defending World Champion San Francisco Giants, 4-1, on Tuesday.
Oberg entered the game at the start of the fifth inning with the score ted, 0-0. Colorado starter Christian Bergman, who is on a limited pitch count, was pulled after throwing 85 pitches over the first four innings.
Oberg gave up an infield hit to leadoff hitter Nori Aoki but followed up by striking out Joe Panik. He then got Angel Pagan and cleanup hitter Brandon Belt to both ground out to end the inning.
Drafted in the 15th round in 2012, the 25-year-old Oberg started the season in Triple A Albuquerque. But he was called up to the Majors on Sunday when reliever John Axford went on family medical leave to tend to his two-year-old son who has been hospitalized for weeks following a snake bite.
