Herrera walked off to warm cheers from the 17,916 fans in the stands. And with Denny Bautista and Sean Burnett combining for three solid innings of relief, the 27-year old Cuban, who took a raft from Cuba to the U.S. when he defected from his native country in July 2005, had his first Major League win.

"[I'm] very happy," Herrera said. "[I don't] have the words to say anything. [I'm] just very, very happy."

He had a cased game ball already displayed on the top shelf of his clubhouse stall.

"It's going to be a gift that [I'm] going to have the rest of [my] life playing baseball," Herrera said.



This might be something all teams do, but this is the first time I've seen it mentioned in a post game wrap.
