Moran went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and an additional run in Thursday's 12-6 defeat at the hands of the Phillies.

Moran did his damage early with a leadoff single followed by a run in the second inning and a 432-foot solo home run to right in the third that gave Pittsburgh a 6-0 lead. He'd been struggling of late, going 2-for-27 over his last seven gams, so it was encouraging to see the first baseman break out with a big game.
