Gamethread: Pirates tackle Red Sox and Orioles

In split squad games, the Pirates send one team to nearby Sarasota to take on Baltimore, while Boston and its fawning media horde arrive at McKechnie Field.

Edinson Volquez will face the Orioles, while Charlie Morton starts at home.  Travis Ishikawa, who's been bothered by a very inopportune hamstring strain, is expected to make his first appearance against the Red Sox.

Both games at 1:05pm.
