Former Pepperdine All-American Noah Lowry made his Major League debut for the San Francisco Giants when he pitched the ninth inning of an 8-1 loss to the Arizona Diamondbacks Friday night at Pacific Bell Park in San Francisco.
Lowry, who was called up by the Giants on Monday, pitched a scoreless inning as he faced four batters and recorded his first career strikeout, retiring former major league all-star Luis Gonzalez on a called third strike.
Lowry played at Pepperdine during the 2000 and 2001 seasons, and was named an All-American as a junior after posting a 14-2 record and 1.71 ERA in 18 games. Lowry, who was named the West Coast Conference's (WCC) "Pitcher of the Year", pitched 121.1 innings and struck out 142. His 142 strikeouts are the second-highest single-season total in school history.
During his two-year career at Pepperdine, Lowry posted an overall record of 20-4 with a 2.52 ERA. In 47 games, Lowry worked 171.2 innings, walked 66 and struck out 193.
