Pirates/MLB Videos

Monday's game

vs. Yankees

1:05 p.m.

McKechnie Field, Bradenton, Fla.

TV: Root Sports, MLB Network (tape delay)

Yankees starter: RHP Hiroki Kuroda

Pirates starter: RHP Stolmy Pimentel

Sunday, March 16, 2014, 5:33 p.m.
 

Phillies starter: RHP Sean O'Sullivan

Pirates starter: LHP Adam Wilk

Big shot: Neil Walker hit his first spring home run in the seventh off lefty Antonio Bastardo. It was noteworthy because Walker did not homer right-handed last season and has just four career home runs right-handed.

Pay it forward: Bryan Morris drilled the Phillies' Cody Asche a half inning after Phillies closer Jonathan Papelbon hit Starling Marte and buzzed Andrew McCutchen up and in.

Frozen ropes: McCutchen and Travis Ishikawa each posted two-hit afternoons.

Stock up: Morris might have secured a roster spot with his last two outings, which covered four, dominant scoreless | innings.

Stock down: Andrew Lambo went 0 for 4 on Sunday, lowering his spring average to .065.
