The Yankees scored six of their seven runs in the 8th inning off Pirates reliever James Marvel.

The big blow after two walks and an infield single, was a bases clearing triple by Brandon Lockridge. Armando Alvarez then singled in Lockridge. Marvel issued another walk and his time was up. Issac Schlabach came in issuing five walks and all the runs in the inning all earned were charge to Marvel who was the loser.

The Pirates pitching had control issues all afternoon as the Yankees drew 14 walks.

A bright spot for the Pirates was a John Ryan Murphy 2-run HR in the 2nd off Yankees starter Jonathan Loaisiga. Murphy has 8 RBI this spring. Kyle Holder was 3 for 4 for the Yankees and Mike Ford had two hits for the Yankees including a double.
