David Peterson, the New York Mets 2017 first round pick, picks up first pro win.

Last season, lefty David Peterson only pitched 3.2 innings with the short-season Brooklyn Cyclones of the New York Penn-League due to a toe injury, according to Baseball America. This year, a slight knee injury in spring training slowed Peterson’s progress.

But Peterson (1-0) rebounded Wednesday night, allowing just one run on four hits and two walks with four strikeouts in six frames in the Columbia Fireflies’ 8-4 victory over the Greenville Drive (Red Sox) at Fluor Field in a South Atlantic League tilt 

It was the 22-year-old New York Mets 2017 first round selection’s season debut, and the former Cyclone helped the Fireflies complete a three-game sweep of Greenville.

Outfielder Quinn Brodey, another ex-Cyclone, smacked two home runs in the game: A solo shot to center field in the eighth, and he followed that up with a two-run, opposite field dinger over the Green Monster in the ninth to extend Columbia’s lead to 8-4.
