On Wednesday night, the Baltimore Orioles got a chance to see yet another one of their young prospects make it to the Major Leagues.
This time around, it was outfielder Colton Cowser.
The 23-year-old made his Major League debut for the Orioles against the New York Yankees and picked up his first big-league hit.
He also scored the go-ahead run as the Orioles defeated the New York Yankees by a final score of 6-3.
Cowser and Jordan Westburg led the way for the Orioles, providing a spark that led to their victory over the Yankees.
On Twitter, MLB Network hyped up Cowser by posting some stats from his MLB debut.

Cowser’s first hit also brought in a run, which ended up being his first big-league RBI.
In the end, it was enough for the Orioles to pull off an impressive victory over their American League East rivals.
The Orioles have received tremendous contributions from their young stars in recent years.
Last year, they got the chance to see Adley Rutschman and Gunnar Henderson up close.
This year, more young stars have arrived on the Major League scene and have helped provide a spark for the O’s, who own the fourth-best record in all of baseball and are just five games behind the Tampa Bay Rays in the AL East.
And down in the minor leagues, they still have Jackson Holliday waiting in the wings, ready to provide a spark at any moment.
But it was certainly a night to remember for Cowser, who helped key an important Orioles win.
