Astros first baseman Jon Singleton made his much-anticipated MLB debut on Tuesday night at home against the Angels (HOU 7, LAA 2), and it turned out to be quite the auspicious occasion. Here's why ...

Singleton also drew a walk, and as such he's batting a rather tidy .333/.500/1.000 after one game.
