Pittsburgh Pirates Meet Sabathia, Yankees After Rout of Orioles

Last night, the Pittsburgh Pirates pounded the Baltimore Orioles for 18 hits in 10-3 rout for the team’s first Spring Training win. Seemingly every Pirates batter had a hit in the game aside from Pedro Alvarez, who finished the day 0-3 with two strikeouts. Not an encouraging first couple days for Pedro, but it’s a long Spring.

Today, the Pirates meet left-handed ace C.C. Sabathia and the New York Yankees at 1:05 PM.

Here’s Pittsburgh’s starting lineup for today:

1. Jose Tabata, RF

2. Clint Barmes, SS

4. Casey McGehee, 1B

5. Neil Walker, 2B

6. Rod Barajas, C

7. Yamaico Navarro, DH

8. Nick Evans, 3B

9. Brandon Boggs, LF
