Pirates Vs. Blue Jays Score: Bucs Lose 8-5, Fall To 0-2 In Spring Training

The Pirates put together a bit more offense on Sunday against the Blue Jays than they did when they were three-hit Saturday in Dunedin, but they still lost, 8-5, thanks in part to some sloppy defense.

The Pirates had three errors, plus a play in which a batter evidently (I listened to the game on radio, but couldn’t watch it) hit a comebacker to Evan Meek, and two runs somehow scored.

New catcher Rod Barajas went 2-for-2 with two RBIs for the Pirates, and Nick Evans hit an opposite-field home run for the Bucs’ first homer of the Spring. (Both games they’ve played so far have had plenty of wind, which means homers have been tough to come by.) Meek allowed four runs, three earned, while starter Erik Bedard gave up two runs in two innings. Shairon Martis, who will likely be in the Indianapolis rotation, allowed two unearned runs.
