PIRATES 10, SPAIN 0

Spain starter: Yoanner Negrin 2 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 2 SO

Pirates starter: Gerrit Cole3 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 6 SO

Beisbol: What level competition?Just before Gaby Sanchez's monster home run in the fifth, Spain C Adrian Nieto allowed a popup to plop behind him.

Big boom: Anderson Hernandez, vying for backup infield duty, hit a three-run home run and went 2 for 3.

Stock up: LF Felix Pie went 1 for 3, but even his outs brought quality, patient at-bats. He's 5 for 14 in Grapefruit League games.

Stock down: LF Jerry Sands, part of the Joel Hanrahan trade, went 0 for 1 with two walks and has just three singles in 18 at-bats.
