Yankees 5, Pirates 4

The Pirates lose another spring training, this time against the Yankees 5-4 in a shorty, five-inning rain-shortened game.

Stephen Brault gave up five runs (four earned) in 3.0 innings of work in his last appearance this spring before heading to Triple-A Indy. Caminero worked a perfect inning with one strikeout after relieving Brault.

As for the offense in this one, JHay ripped a triple and a double as he looks ready to go for the season, Marte went 1-for-3 with an RBI single and Jacob Stallings smacked his first home run this spring.

Tomorrow, the Bucs finish their spring training action at McKechnie Field with their last game in Bradenton for 2016 against the Red Sox. Jon Niese will starter opposite David Price.
