Big League Bulldogs (entering 7/29): Frazier raises the Jolly Roger

Joel Coleman

Former Mississippi State infielder Adam Frazier wasn't a power threat at all when he was a Bulldog, but he's shown some pop since arriving in the big leagues with the Pittsburgh Pirates back in 2016. On Tuesday night, that pop paid off in a big way.

Frazier cranked a go-ahead, two-run homer in the bottom of the eighth inning to lift the Pirates over the Milwaukee Brewers 8-6.

Other than Frazier's game-winning bomb, it was a quiet night across the MLB landscape for former Bulldogs. Here's what happened on Tuesday night, along with season stats for all eight active former Bulldogs currently in the big leagues:
