TORONTO (WTVA/AP) - Former Mississippi State Bulldog Tyler Moore hit the first two home runs of his career, Stephen Strasburg won his fifth straight start and the Washington Nationals beat the Toronto Blue Jays 6-2 Wednesday to complete a three-game sweep.
Recalled from Triple-A Syracuse last week, Moore started in place of Adam LaRoche, who was out after fouling a ball off his right foot in Tuesday's victory.
Moore went 3-for-4 with five RBI in Wednesday's contest.
Moore played for Mississippi State in 2008 after two years at Meridian Community College and was drafted by the Nationals in 16th Round of the 2008 MLB Draft.
Ian Desmond also connected as Washington completed the first undefeated six-game road trip since the franchise relocated from Montreal. The NL East-leading Nationals, who swept Boston at Fenway Park last weekend, outscored the Red Sox and Blue Jays 31-16.
Jose Bautista hit his 19th home run for Toronto against Strasburg (8-1).
