DETROIT, Michigan – Jackson Wolf officially made his big league debut on Saturday with the San Diego Padres against the Detroit Tigers and earned his first big league win in the process.

The slender lefty only had to throw four pitches in the first inning but ran in to trouble in the second inning as he threw 30-plus pitches allowing three runs.

Wolf, 24, also recorded his first strikeout of his career in fifth inning against Spencer Torkelson.

Wolf also was protected by the Padres offense as they exploded for four runs in the third, one in the fourth and five in the fifth innings to defeat the Tigers, 14-3.

Wolf went five innings allowing three runs on six hits with a walk and strikeout.

On the evening Wolf faced 22 batters and threw 75 pitches, 45 for strikes to earn a 60-percent strike thrown percentage.

It is unclear if the Padres plan to keep him on the 40-man roster or send him back down the minors. Either way, for his first start in the big leagues, it was a good outing.
