Miguel Sano didn't waste any time tallying his first Double-A RBI on Wednesday.

The Minnesota Twins' best hitting prospect delivered a bases-loaded sacrifice fly in the sixth inning of New Britain's game against Altoona. The sac fly wound up accounting for the Rock Cats' only run of the afternoon, as they went on to lose 7-1 in Game 1 of a doubleheader.

Sano finished 0-for-1 with a walk in three trips in his first game since being promoted on Sunday. 

Eddie Rosario, also making his Double-A debut, went 1-for-2 with a walk and a run scored.

Both players dismantled the High-A Florida State League over the first two months of the season, with Sano hitting .330/.424/.655 and Rosario .329/.377/.527.
