Vestal, N.Y.– Former Binghamton University baseball pitcher Scott Diamond (Guelph, Ontario) made his professional debut on Saturday with the Rome Braves, Atlanta's Class A affiliate in the South Atlantic League.

Diamond started the game and worked 4.2 innings, allowing four hits and three runs. He struck out one, walked one and had a no decision in the team's 5-4 loss to Charleston.

In his first inning as a pro, Diamond retired the side in order. He also worked a 1-2-3 third inning before allowing three runs in the fourth frame on a double, back-to-back singles and a pair of sacrifice flies. Diamond retired the first two batters in the fifth inning before being relieved.

Diamond signed with the Atlanta organization last August, and reported to its spring training facility in Orlando in the fall.

In three seasons at Binghamton, he totalled 14 wins and started 37 games - the most starts of any BU pitcher in that span.

Last spring, he went 5-3 for the Bearcats, helping the team win the America East regular season title and earn conference runnerup honors. In his final outing for Binghamton on May 26, 2007, Diamond earned a 13-4 win over Maine in an elimination game at the America East tournament. He posted a 3.45 earned run average and pitched four complete games in 2007 - the most on BU's staff.
