Phillies Vs. Pirates: Vance Worley, Phils Two-Hit Bucs

The Phillies two-hit the Pirates on Monday en route to a 4-1 victory, as Vance Worley struck out eight batters in four perfect innings to start the game.

Charlie Morton made his spring debut for the Pirates and pitched two scoreless innings, striking out two and scattering four hits. Morton had hip surgery this offseason, but it looks like he should be on track to pitch at the beginning of the season, which is good news.

The Pirates managed only two singles on the game, scoring their lone run on an error in the seventh. Many Pirates were in St. Petersburg playing a game against the Netherlands, however. (The Bucs won that game 8-2.)

Hector Luna and Jimmy Rollins hit home runs for the Phillies.

The Pirates have the day off on Tuesday, and will face the Orioles on Wednesday.
