Big League Bulldogs (entering 7/26): Moreland's homer highlights Saturday's action

Joel Coleman

Mitch Moreland has become the first former Diamond Dog to go deep in 2020.

Moreland, now a slugging first baseman for the Boston Red Sox, pulled a home run to right field on Saturday. It was just about all the Red Sox had go their way though as Boston ultimately fell to Baltimore 7-2.

Elsewhere on Saturday, a pair of former Bulldog hurlers had strong season debuts as Chris Stratton and Jonathan Holder had scoreless relief outings for the Pirates and Yankees respectively. Here's a quick look back at all of Saturday's action for former MSU players, as well as season stats.
