Pirates Vs. Rays Score: Pirates Allow Two Runs In Ninth, Lose By One

Pirates nonroster invitee Jake Fox’s go-ahead solo home run in the top of the ninth against the Tampa Bay rays went to waste as the Bucs gave up two runs in the bottom of the inning and lost, 4-3.

The Pirates only managed four hits on the afternoon, although two of those wer home runs. In addition to the Fox homer, there was also a blast by Pedro Alvarez in the fifth, Alvarez’s second of the spring.

Kevin Correia pitched three scoreless innings to start the game. Justin Wilson allowed two runs, but Bryan Morris, Daniel Moskos and Jared Hughes kept the Rays off the board until the bottom of the ninth.

Doug Slaten came on in the ninth with a score of 3-2 Pirates, and allowed a single and a double. Then Chris Gimenez hit a ball off Slaten’s glove that ended up in left field, and both runners scored.
