Thursday’s 21-3 blowout loss to the Oakland Athletics may not have been one to remember for the Los Angeles Angels as a team, but it certainly was for Angels catcher Francisco Arcia from an individual standpoint.

According to’s Maria Guardado, Arcia became the first player in MLB history to catch, pitch and hit a home run in the same game.

“It’s a nice little note for Frankie, for sure,” Los Angeles manager Mike Scioscia said, per Guardado. “OK guys, are we good on that note? I think we’re good.”
