Former Greenjacket Hits Big League Homer, Heads Back To Minors

By  | 

TOKYO (AP) -- The Red Sox optioned outfielder Brandon Moss to
Triple-A Pawtucket after today's 5-1 loss to Oakland in Tokyo.
Moss started in right field in Boston's first two regular season
games in Japan in place of the injured J.D. Drew. Moss'
ninth-inning home run tied Wednesday's opener, which the Red Sox
went on to win 6-5 in 10 innings. Moss went 2-for-8 with two RBIs in the series. He hit .282 with a team-best 16 homers for Pawtucket last season and .280 in 15 games with Boston.
