Red Sox's Mitch Moreland: Homers in Friday's win
Moreland went 3-for-7 with a walk, a home run, two RBI and three runs scored in Friday's 13-6 extra-inning win over the Rays.
With Hanley Ramirez (biceps) injured again, Moreland should get ample at-bats as Boston's everyday first baseman, particularly as the Red Sox battle it out in the AL East. The left-handed-hitting Moreland has soldiered through injuries of his own this season, reaching a career high in plate appearances (529). Because the Red Sox are 27th in MLB with 153 home runs and have had difficulty scoring runs, Moreland's 19 homers and 71 RBI -- ranking third on the team in both categories -- have been significant. He should continue to hit up in the order near the team's best hitters, generating more RBI opportunities over the final two weeks.
