Jason Part II

| No Comments

The second act of Jason Lane's career is even more captivating than the first.  The outfielder, who once homered in the NLCS clinching game for the Houston Astros, is now a left-handed hurler for the San Diego Padres, and the 37-year-old earned the first mound start of his major league career today.

Lane took the hard luck loss, but he likely won't bemoan any misfortune after his cinematic comeback.  He pitched well on the day logging six innings, while giving up just a single run, and he went 1-for-2 at the plate.

Lane was an All-American at USC showing off his dual threat skills in the 1998 College World Series.  In the championship game, he not only pitched 2.2 shutout innings to pick up the win, but he also capped the 21-14 victory with a 9th inning grand slam.
