PITTSBURGH — Freddy Galvis did what no Phillies player had done in 42 years: He made his major-league debut in the opening day starting lineup.
Then he made more history: He was only the 11th player in modern baseball to hit into two double plays in his debut game. No Phillie had ever done that before.
"When I got to the field, that first inning, I just looked around, saw the field, and enjoyed myself," Galvis said. "I've been working for that. I enjoyed it. It's lot different, baseball here."
Galvis assisted on five plays and made two putouts at second, one on a nifty 6-4-3 double play ball in the first inning that bailed out Roy Halladay from his only trouble.
