Mets’ Nate Fisher’s MLB Debut One for the Ages


Oh, what a difference a year makes.

Last year, now-New York Mets reliever Nate Fisher was working as a commercial lending analysis at a bank in his hometown of Omaha, Nebraska.

Nate Fisher mentions receiving a text from his old boss from the bank.

But today, he pitched three scoreless innings of relief in his major league debut, as the Mets came-from-behind to edge the Philadelphia Philles, 10-9, at Citizens Bank Park.

Outfielder Mark Canha’s two home runs provided the juice for New York in its thrilling victory.

Fisher, 26, permitted one hit while striking out one and walking two, keeping the Mets in the contest and paving the way for their comeback, in a game the Blue and Orange desperately needed to pull four games ahead of the Atlanta Braves in the National League East.

Fisher posted a 1-3 record with a 3.38 ERA in 72.0 innings of work between Double-A Binghamton and Triple-A Syracuse as a starter and reliever before New York called him up to “The Show.”
