The pre-game message for Sean Nolin prior to his major league debut was a universal one.

From manager John Gibbons to his new teammates, the sentiment was to enjoy the moment, be yourself, don’t treat it any different than any other start.

“I just want (Nolin) to enjoy it,” Gibbons said before the game. “That first big-league start, it only happens once. You want to have fun with it, enjoy it, see what happens.

“I think his parents are coming up (from Seaford, N.Y.).”
