Final: Pirates 7, Yankees 4


Looking ahead to first pitch …

Game: Pirates (1-2) vs. New York Yankees, Grapefruit League

Time: 1:05 p.m.

Site: McKechnie Field, Bradenton, Fla.


Here is the live box score. Rob Biertempfel is on the scene.


  1. Justin Wilson looked AWESOME yesterday. 95 from the left side with that delivery is definitely promising. Wouldn’t mind seeing him force the Pirates hand this season.

  2. Even if it is as a bullpen piece.

  3. Wilson has an arm, control has been holding him back.

  4. I heard an interview with Ray Searage last week. He said Wilson had made an adjustment with his delivery & he was really excited to see him in games. He also mentioned Juan Cruz who is off to a good start this spring.

  5. Milo

    Cruz has a shot at making the club. They still have hope for Wilson to be a starter so most likely will try him in the Indy rotation.

  6. JAL,

    What about Leroux? You mentioned him in your series and of course, he’s out of options. Does he have to have a great spring?

  7. Lucky

    Leroux has a good chance to make the team, most likely at expense of D. McCutchen

  8. Some good pitching against the Yanks today. Leroux had 1-2-3 inning with a K

  9. JAL

    You did say that. Shame. McCutchen had some good stretches last season and he’s a good kid.

  10. Leroux also at the expense of Resop ?

  11. Is DMac out of options as well?

  12. Ryan

    No, DMac has two options left

  13. Milo

    Possible but not likely, Pirates love power arms.

  14. Leroux can be nasty against righthanded hitters.

  15. And he is NOT a power arm, Leroux is more of one.

    Who doesn’t love power arms??

  16. Final Pirates 7 Yankees 4

    Yankees scored two unearned runs off McCutchen in 9th.

  17. opps, he’s fired now…..

  18. Starling Marte-Called up this summer?

  19. Ryan – once he shows he can catch a fly ball. :)

  20. No Pitt game thread, Dejan? Your punishment is this post-game Gibbs quote: “Anything is possible with God on our side.”

    DK: Totally my fault. Got all wrapped up in this Sid stuff. It will be there tomorrow. Promise.

  21. Marte has no AAA experience so depends on how he does there and what needs the Pirates have mid-season.

  22. I really don’t see him being called up unless its in September. I think LF is Presley’s to lose and then if he does, they didn’t pay Nate a million bucks to sit around. I look for him to be the the LFer in 2013.

    Interesting if AP does well though. I don’t see him to be a chip to offer in a trade to grab anybody of any importance.

  23. Can somewhere tell me where Pedro has been during this young spring training season?

  24. Pedro played last night–0-3 with 2 K

  25. Tabata is the one who hasn’t produced much. Why does everyone instantly think ‘Presley’ when looking for a spot in the outfield?

    If Tabata doesn’t start hitting and with more power, at least with Al Oliver-like line drive/extra base hit authority rather than the Miguel Dilone-like punch & Judy hitting he showed last year, he will be lucky if Nate McLouth doesn’t take his starting job. Mark my words.
