Bobby Dalbec Hits Homer in Major League Debut, Red Sox Power Way To Series Win over Nationals
Bobby Dalbec hit a two-run homer in his major league debut, Rafael Devers hit a pair of home runs, and the Boston Red Sox beat the Washington Nationals 9-5. The 25-year-old Dalbec started hours after Boston traded first baseman Mitch Moreland to San Diego. Dalbec struck out in his first at-bat before taking Javy Guerra deep over Pesky’s Pole in right field in the third inning. Devers had a two-run blast and a solo shot. Xander Bogaerts hit a two-run homer and Kevin Plawecki added two RBIs for the Red Sox. Reliever Josh Osich tossed 1 1/3 scoreless innings for the win.
