MINNEAPOLIS — A former pitcher with the Edenton Steamers made his major league debut Friday night.
Randy Dobnak made his first appearance in a Major League Baseball game for the Minnesota Twins against the Cleveland Indians at Target Field.
Dobnak, a right-handed pitcher, entered the game in the top of the sixth inning.
He would pitch four innings, gave up six hits, no earned runs, no walks, had a fielding error and struck out three Indians.
The Twins lost to the Indians 6-2.
Before Dobnak was called up by the Twins on Thursday, he had pitched for Triple-A Rochester, Double-A Pensacola and Single-A Fort Myers in the Twins minor league system during the 2019 season.
Dobnak, who pitched at the college level at Alderson-Broaddus University, was a member of the Edenton Steamers during the 2016 season.
He was signed by the Twins as an undrafted free agent in 2017.
