Seth Beer had a dream start to his career as he homers in his first at bat in the bigs.
Beer, hit a solo home run in his first career at-bat in the D-backs' 5-4 loss to the Mariners at T-Mobile Park. Pinch-hitting for Christian Walker with two outs in the eighth inning, Beer sent a sinker from right-hander Diego Castillo just over the right-field wall.
Beer was called up ahead of Friday's game after having a strong 2021 season for Triple-A Reno. He slashed .287/.398/.511 in 100 games with the Aces, and he led all Triple-A players with 73 runs scored and was tied for the lead with 49 extra-base hits at the time of his promotion. Across three years in the Minors -- which also included time in the Astros' system -- Beer hit .292 with a .901 OPS.
