Watch Joey Bart Hit RBI Single in First At-bat of San Jose Giants Debut

VISALIA -- Giants top prospect Joey Bart found himself in an early hole in the first at-bat of his San Jose Giants debut on Thursday night.

With the count at one ball and one strike, Visalia Rawhide starting pitcher Jeff Bain cruised in a fastball that Bart swung through with a hack that would have sent the pitch far over the left-field field. Two pitches later, Bart made up for it. 

Bart's first hit and first RBI as a San Jose Giant came on a two-strike single to right field that scored leadoff batter Bryce Johnson to give the Giants an early 1-0 lead.

The catcher is batting fourth in the Giants' lineup on Opening Day. He's following No. 2 prospect Heliot Ramos. 

In Ramos' first at-bat, he hit a hard grounder to shortstop, but Jancarlos Cintron made a nice sliding play to throw him out.
