Mitch Moreland is starting to heat up.
The Boston Red Sox first baseman went yard Thursday night against the Oakland Athletics, and he one-upped himself Friday.
The Red Sox were locked in a scoreless tie with the A’s during the fourth inning when Moreland came to the plate with a runner on second and one out.
The Boston first baseman got a cutter from A’s starter Kendall Graveman and cranked it over the right-field fence for a two-run blast.
The home run was Moreland’s fourth of the year and went a long way.
The Red Sox certainly hope Moreland stays hot.
