BOSTON (AP) -- Bobby Dalbec hit a two-run home run in his major league debut, Rafael Devers hit a pair of home runs, and the Boston Red Sox beat the Washington National 9-5 on Sunday.
The 25-year-old Dalbec started hours after Boston traded first baseman Mitch Moreland to San Diego. Dalbec (2 for 4) struck out in his first at-bat before taking Javy Guerra deep over Pesky's Pole in right field in the third inning.
"I knew I barreled it -- I didn't really know where at first," Dalbec said. "Then I kind of saw it right over the pole, so I was just hoping that it stayed fair."
