Pirates Vs. Red Sox Final Score: Andrew McCutchen Paces 7-4 Victory

Andrew McCutchen helped the Pirates to a 7-4 Spring Training victory over the Boston Red Sox in Fort Myers Friday night.

McCutchen went 3-for-3, singling in the first, then driving in a run with a long double off the Green Monster-like wall in left field in the third, then knocking in another with another double off the wall in the fifth. Meanwhile, other Pirates hit with the authority as well, with Jose Tabata hitting two doubles and Clint Barmes adding one of his own. The bulk of the damage came off Vicente Padilla, who was charged with four runs.

Tony Watson allowed a line-drive homer by David Ortiz, and Doug Slaten gave up another to Darnell McDonald, but the Pirates’ pitchers mostly kept runs off the board. Starter Shairon Martis (who will likely begin the year in the Indianapolis rotation) pitched two scoreless innings, and Chris Resop, Daniel McCutchen and Tim Wood all had scoreless outings as well.
