Red Sox Vs. Pirates Score: Matt Hague, Nate McLouth Homer In 6-5 Win

The Pirates defeated the Boston Red Sox 6-5 in Grapefruit League play Wednesday afternoon thanks in part to home runs by Nate McLouth and Matt Hague.

Hague’s homer capped a four-run third inning for the Pirates. The Bucs started the inning with a double by Josh Harrison and then singles by Andrew McCutchen, Casey McGehee and Neil Walker. Harrison and McCutchen scored, and McGehee got called out at third on Walker’s hit, leaving Hague to bring home Walker with his homer.

Kevin Correia pitched five innings and allowed four runs, two of those coming on a homer by Jarrod Saltalamacchia in the fourth. Evan Meek also allowed a solo homer (by Mauro Gomez) in his two innings of work. Joel Hanrahan and Juan Cruz pitched scoreless innings in relief.

Harrison and Hague both had two-hit games for the Pirates, who had 12 hits overall.
