On this day in 2008, Danny Ray Herrera made his major league debut with the Reds against the Phillies at the age of 23. Herrera struck out two and walked one in an inning of work at Citizens Bank Park. Although Herrera didn't allow a hit or a run, Cincinnati lost to Philadelphia, 3 - 2. Pat Burrell homered for the Phils off of Aaron Harang while Edwin Encarnacion doubled and homered for the Reds. Adam Eaton (no, not the one who plays for the White Sox now) picked up the win for Philadelphia. Tom Gordon (father of Dee) allowed a run in one frame, and Brad Lidge (remember him?) earned the save.
