Pirates Vs. Phillies Final Score: Bucs Lose 4-3 Despite Andrew McCutchen Homer

Andrew McCutchen homered, but the Pirates lost 4-3 to the Phillies in a Spring Training game in Philadelphia Friday.

The Phillies scored in the first when Juan Pierre doubled, then came home on a sacrifice fly. They added another in the second when Shane Victorino tripled and then scored on a groundout, and then took a 3-0 lead in the third on an RBI double by Jimmy Rollins.

The Pirates put up two runs in the fourth when Jose Tabata and Neil Walker singled and Garrett Jones doubled. McCutchen tied the game in the sixth with his homer.

The Phillies scored the winning run in the seventh on a Freddy Galvis RBI triple off minor-leaguer Ryan Beckman.

Pedro Alvarez, who has struggled throughout Spring Training, went 0-for-3 for the Bucs.

The Pirates face the Phillies in another exhibition game on Tuesday.
