Pirates Two-Hit By Phillies

Vance Worley struck out eight Pirates in four perfect innings to start the game, and things didn't get much better from there, as the Bucs only managed two hits, both singles. They scored a run on an error in the seventh and lost 4-1. Charlie Morton pitched two innings in his spring debut, striking out two and walking none. He did allow four singles, but it's certainly good to see him out there pitching. He still has plenty of time to be ready to go when the season starts. Mel Rojas Jr. made an appearance in left field and went 0-for-2.

In the split-squad game, Michael McKenry and Jeff Karstens led the Pirates to an 8-2 victory.

The Bucs have the day off tomorrow, and they'll face the Orioles on Wednesday.
