Cody Ege made his pro pitching debut Friday for the Spokane Indians.
Cherokee, Iowa, native Cody Ege made his professional baseball debut Friday night for the Spokane Indians in Washington.
Ege pitched an inning and two-thirds of relief, giving up one run while striking out two batters. The lefty did not factor in the decision but Spokane won 4-3 in 12 innings. Spokane has won six straight games to improve to 12-10.
It was Ege's first outing since pitching for Louisville in the College World Series in Omaha more than two weeks ago.
He was a 15th-round draft pick of the Texas Rangers.
