On Tuesday night, the San Francisco Giants picked up a huge win over the Washington Nationals.
But the story of the game was infielder Casey Schmitt, who was recently called up from Triple-A Sacramento.
The Giants won the game by a final of 4-1 and improved to 16-19 on the season.
The highlight of the game came in the bottom of the fourth inning when Schmitt stepped to the plate for his second at-bat of the game.
On the first pitch of the at-bat, Schmitt hit a towering drive out to left-center field for his first career home run.
On Twitter, the Giants posted a video of the moment.

The camera panned to the stands, where Schmitt’s family was sitting and showed just how elated everybody was to see the young infielder hit his first career homer.
The crowd in San Francisco went insane for their young prospect, and the bench was quite excited as well.
But Schmitt got a chance to experience something truly special with his family in attendance.
Schmitt picked up two hits against the Nationals, but his home run was the story of the game.
The 24-year-old was selected by the Giants in the second round of the 2020 draft with the No. 49 overall pick after attending San Diego State University.
Finally, the young infielder has made it to the Major Leagues and got a chance to not only make his MLB debut, but also hit his first career home run with his whole family watching from the stands.NEXT: Mitch Haniger Made A Must-See Catch Monday Night
