pirates 0, orioles 0 (10 innings)
Orioles starter: RHP Jake Arrieta 6 IP, 6 H, 2 BB, 9 SO
Pirates starter: LHP Jonathan Sanchez 5 IP, 2 H, 1 BB, 4 SO, 1 WP
Scratched: Gaby Sanchez was removed from the lineup because of what the Pirates described only as “an allergic reaction.”
Frozen: The Pirates had runners on first and second with one out in the fourth, but Arrieta got Brad Hawpe and Clint Barmes to take called third strikes.
Stock up: Starling Marte jumped on the first pitch of the game and lashed a double to left field. Later, he sprinted to the left-field corner to haul in a deep liner by Chris Davis.
Stock down: Hawpe replaced Sanchez as the designated hitter and went 0 for 3 (all strikeouts) and stranded five runners on base.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.
While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.
We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
