Peacock pitched the final three innings in the Diamondbacks’ 10-8, 13-inning triumph over the Colorado Rockies at Coors Field in Denver.

Peacock’s debut was the first in Major League Baseball since April 19, 1945. That was the last occasion a pitcher made his debut appearance in an extra-inning game and earned a hit and a victory.

Pieretti of the Washington Senators pitched all 12 innings in the Senators’ 4-3 win over the Philadelphia Athletics at Shibe Park on that date. Pieretti made his MLB debut with a single.

Peacock’s debut, however, went above and beyond that rarity. Peacock is the only pitcher who has gotten a hit in his MLB debut after the ninth inning, out of the 30 pitchers who have done so.

In his MLB debut, Peacock allowed two unearned runs on one hit and one walk while striking out one batter.

Due to the extra-inning rules implemented by Major League Baseball last season, Peacock had to deal with a runner placed on second in each of his frames when he took the mound in the 11th inning.
