MOOSIC, Pa. (AP) -Jason Giambi homered in his first at-bat of a rehab start for Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Friday night, going 1-for-3 with four walks and a strikeout in a doubleheader against Buffalo.
Giambi, recovering from a left foot injury, was the designated hitter in Game 1. He hit a 2-2 pitch over the left-center field fence in the first inning for a solo homer.
He started at first base in the second game and finished with three putouts and an assist before being removed for a pinch runner in the sixth inning.
Giambi tore tissue in his foot on May 30 and started his rehab last week at Class-A Tampa, where he played four games.
Giambi said he would be reevaluated after Friday's games, but was also told that two more games in Triple-A were likely.
``I don't necessarily think its results, it's more how you feel,'' he said before the doubleheader. ``Are you having any problems? Are you in any pain?
``The biggest thing they want is, they want to make sure you're not going to go back down. We'd rather have you take a few more days than get hurt again, but I feel great.
``Everything's going good. It healed faster than we all thought it would and the games are going great.''
