Pirates Defeat Manatees in Tuneup Game

As they should, but still. Pedro Alvarez went 3-4 with a double, and Steve Pearce, Brandon Moss and Class AAA catcher Erik Kratz hit back-to-back-to-back homers in the 3rd. Bryan Morris pitched a scoreless inning for the win. The Pirates mostly left their major leaguers on the sidelines, so this was basically a AAA team; Moss' presence in this game might show how little the Pirates think of him at this point.

Congratulations to the Manatees' B.J. Zimmerman, who went 2-for-3 with a homer (off Jeff Sues) and a walk; that'll be a great story for the grandkids.
