GOODYEAR, Ariz. -- Brandon Moss showed off the power that persuaded Cleveland to trade for him, hitting a three-run homer off Ryan Vogelsong that helped the Indians beat the San Francisco Giants 9-5 on Tuesday night.
Just picked by Sports Illustrated to win the 2015 World Series, the Indians went out and beat the defending champions in a Cactus League tuneup.
Moss, coming off a hip injury that sapped his power in the second half last season, connected for his third home run of the spring.
Minor league outfielder Jerry Sands cleared the center-field batter's eye - which is 55 feet tall - with a two-run shot off Vogelsong.
Vogelsong, who tossed 4 2-3 scoreless innings in his previous outing, has given up four homers and 12 earned runs in 17 innings.
