What a way for former Georgia baseball player Kyle Farmer to begin his MLB career.
Farmer’s first career at-bat took place Sunday night, and it wasn’t your typical scenario for a player making his debut — a pinch-hit appearance, down 2-1 with runners on first and second base, and one out in the bottom of the 11th inning at Dodger Stadium.
Any pressure certainly didn’t get to Farmer, who drove a two-run double into right field to lift the Dodgers to a win over the Giants.
Take at look at Farmer’s impressive heroics below:

Farmer was selected by Los Angeles in the eighth round of the 2013 draft. He started at shortstop for four years at Georgia before transitioning to catcher in his professional career.
He is one of three former Bulldogs currently with the Dodgers, joining pitchers Alex Wood and Josh Fields.
Farmer was promoted to the Dodgers on Friday. After the win on Sunday, the Dodgers improved to a major-league best 74-31 Sunday.
