The Reds deployed another former Frog in replacement of an injured former Frog as Brandon WIlliamson was brought up to The Show, shutting down the Rockies in Coors Field in his MLB debut

The Reds had a need in their starting rotation after Nick Lodolo went on the 15-day injured list. Williamson, who pitched better in his last two minor league starts, had all his pitches working during his debut with his family loudly cheering after many of his strikes in the crowd of 20,611.

Brandon Williamson solid in debut, Reds defeat Rockies to even series - Red Reporter
The rookie left-hander delivered his best performance of the season in his MLB debut.

He threw 5.2 innings and allowed only 1 run on 2 hits with 2 walks and 6 strikeouts. That included a stretch of 14-straight retired batters until Ezequiel Tovar homered in the bottom of the 6th to break a scoreless tie. On a night where the Reds’ offense was struggling to get things going, that was more than enough to keep them in the game for the eventual win. Congrats on a hell of a debut, Brandon.
