Former New York Yankee Roger Clemens took the mound for the Sugar Land Skeeters of the independent Atlantic League in Texas on Saturday night, making it the first time the 50-year-old player pitched since he retired at the end of the 2007 season.

The seven-time Cy Young award winner tossed three-and-a-third scoreless innings, allowing just one hit and striking out two, including the first batter he faced.

The Skeeters won the game 1-0.

This comes just a little more than two months after Clemens was acquitted of charges he lied to Congress about using performance-enhancing drugs.

It is not clear when Clemens may pitch again.
