The Buccos have won two games in a row to move to 10-10 on the spring docket, and they have the fourth-best run differential in the Grapefruit League. They’ll play the Twins in Bradenton today, who they defeated 4-2 in a game last week.

Pirate pitching seems to be heating up a bit, so hopefully the 1-0 Chase De Jong can keep things rolling.
