The Pirates are 1-3 since the beginning of the week, most recently dropping an 11-9 affair to the Baltimore Orioles. That game saw Ke’Bryan Hayes goes 2-for-4 with a pair of doubles, while Todd Frazier contributed three RBIs.

Steven Brault allowed three runs – two earned – over two innings of work as the starter. Sam Howard (0-1) took the loss after contributing an inning and allowing a pair of runs.

As we continue to press near the end of Spring Training, the Pirates will look to begin wrapping up the process of preparing for the regular season.
