Former Clemson two-sport star Kyle Parker got his first Major League hit Wednesday night after being called up for the second time this season by the Colorado Rockies.

Parker started at first base and delivered a second-inning single, while playing error free at first base in the Rockies' 6-3 win over the San Diego Padres in Denver.

He had been 0-for-6 at the plate in a brief stint with the Rockies earlier this summer, while batting nearly .300 during the spring at AAA Colorado Springs.
