    First Career Win and First Career Home Run In The Same Game

    Before the Mets' Jeremy Hefner tonight, who was the last pitcher to get his first career win and hit his first career home run in the same game?

    I believe Hoyt Wilhelm hit his only home run in the first game he pitched but I'm not sure if he was the winning pitcher.

    He did it but it wasn't the first game he pitched. It was his third game and first start.

    But did he win that game? If he did than he equaled what Hefner did.

    He won the game. It was on April 23, 1952.

    http://espn.go.com/blog/sweetspot/po...ek-in-review-7 says the player to do it before Hefner was "Dennis Tankersley of the Padres on May 15, 2002."

    Not even the best pitcher ever named Dennis ___kersley.
