According to the Elias Sports Bureau…Anthony Bass made his Major League debut with a start for the Padres last night at Colorado and got the win by pitching 5.0 innings and allowing only one run. Bass is the first pitcher to win his Big League debut with a start for San Diego in which he gave up no more than one run since Sept. 17, 2001, when Jason Middlebrook beat the Dodgers in Los Angeles, allowing only one run in six innings.
In addition, Bass became only the second player in MLB history to make his Major League debut at Coors Field and work at least 5.0 innings while allowing one or fewer runs. The only other player to do so was Rockies starter Juan Nicasio, who allowed one unearned run over 7.0 frames on May 28 of this year.
Here is audio of Anthony Bass joining Ted and Andy for a postgame interview on XX 1090:
