Welcome to The Show, Oscar Taveras.

The 21-year-old St. Louis Cardinals rookie made his MLB debut on Saturday against the San Francisco Giants, and he made sure to start his career on a high note. In his second at-bat in the bottom of the fifth inning, Taveras got his first career hit on a home run to right field.

The Cardinals called up Taveras on Friday evening to replace Matt Adams, who was put on the disabled list with a left calf strain. After hitting .325 in the minors with seven home runs and 49 RBI in 40 games in 2014, Taveras wasted little time getting his bat acquainted to the big leagues.
