Twins Vs. Pirates: Ross Ohlendorf Strikes Out Four, But Pirates Lose 4-2

The Pirates lost to the Twins in Spring Training action today, 4-2. Ross Ohlendorf started the game for the Bucs, and he struck out four batters in 1.2 innings but gave up a run. He was followed by a parade of pitchers: Michael Dubee (minor-league veteran trying to make it to Class AAA this year), Tony Watson (a future lefty reliever who could be at Indianapolis), Michael Crotta (a minor-league starter), Joel Hanrahan, Tom Boleska (another minor-league reliever), Jose Veras (on a minor-league contract, but likely to be in the Pirates’ ’pen this year), Justin Thomas and Chris Leroux.

Offensively, Andrew Lambo, Pedro Alvarez and Steve Pearce all doubled for the Pirates, and Jose Tabata led off and went 3-for-3. Danny Valencia had two doubles and two RBIs for the Twins, and Luke Hughes homered off Hanrahan, who struggled throughout his outing. Brian Duensing picked up the win for the Twins after pitching two scoreless innings. Former Pirate Matt Capps pitched a scoreless third inning for the Twins.
