PITTSBURGH (FOX5) -
Las Vegas native Nick Kingham was impressive in his big league debut Sunday for the Pittsburgh Pirates. The rookie pitcher was perfect through 6 2/3 innings before giving up a single in the Pirates' 5-0 win.
Kingham, who graduated from Sierra Vista High School, struck out nine and walked none.
It has been a long road for Kingham, the Pirates' fourth-round draft pick in 2010, according to mlb.com. He underwent Tommy John surgery in 2015, and didn't return to the mound until July 2016.
