Didn’t get to watch this one, but it is available on MLB.tv in the archives if any subscribers are interested in checking it out.

Starling Marte homered [video] in his first AB for his 2nd long ball of the spring. It also extended his hit streak to 8 straight AB. He did, however actually record an out later on in the game to finish 1 for 2.

James McDonald started for the Bucs and gave up 1 ER over 3 innings. He gave up 2 hits and struck out a batter. Daniel Moskos added 2 scoreless innings of relief. Bryan Morris and Michael Crotta also each added a scoreless frame.

Justin Wilson struggled a bit giving up 3 walks and a hit in 2/3 of an inning while giving up a run. Jared Hughes also gave up 2 runs on 3 hits and a walk in his inning of work.

Rod Barajas went 2 for 3 with a double and is hitting .500 so far this spring. Josh Harrison and Alex Presley both singled and stole a base.

The Pirates play tomorrow evening at 7:05 against the Red Sox. The game will air live on MLB Network. Shairon Martis is set to make the start for the Bucs.
