Yankees Vs. Pirates: Bucs Shut Out Bombers In Spring Training Tilt

The Pirates shut out the Yankees today, 2-0, in Bradenton. James McDonald started the game for the Bucs and pitched two innings. He was followed by Aaron Thompson, Chris Resop, Daniel McCutchen, Ramon Aguero and Danny Moskos. Steve Pearce and Pedro Ciriaco doubled for the Pirates, who did most of their damage against Brian Anderson (the former outfielder, who pitched in the Royals organization last year).

Like many early spring lineups, the Yankees’ featured a bunch of major leaguers, but their starting pitcher was Phil Hughes and their lineup included Nick Swisher, Curtis Granderson (who had a triple) and Jorge Posada along with top prospect Jesus Montero.

The Pirates’ next game is tomorrow against the Twins at 1:00 in Bradenton. Ross Ohlendorf will get the start, and Joel Hanrahan and Tony Watson will also pitch. Former Pirate Matt Capps will be among the Twins’ pitchers, and Brian Duensing will start.
