Vince Molesky (1-0) allowed just one hit and struck out nine batters over six innings for his first win of the season.

“Ultimately I just wanted to take what I’ve been doing out in the bullpen and transition that into being a starter,” said Molesky. “I wanted to take that bulldog approach and attack each hitter with everything I got and lay it all out on the line.”
