Antonio Senzatela's first win of his young major-league career was more to him than just a stat.

After pitching seven innings for the Colorado Rockies on Tuesday, striking out five San Diego Padres batters and allowing just two earned runs, Senzatela plans to pay tribute to his late mother Nidya, who died last August in Venezuela after a bout with cancer, with a ball from his first big-league win.

"I'm going to take it and give it to my mom," Senzatela told MLB.com's Thomas Harding. "In her tomb."

Tuesday's outing was only the second appearance in the big leagues for Senzatela after pitching in just seven games in Double-A last season. He also pitched five scoreless innings in his MLB debut, a no-decision against the Milwaukee Brewers on April 6.
