BRADENTON, Fla. - For those of you scoring at home, here’s the Pirates lineup:
Jose Tabata LF
Matt Diaz RF
Neil Walker 2B
Lyle Overbay 1B
Garrett Atkins 3B
Ronny Cedeno SS
Gorkys Hernandez CF
Jason Jaramillo C
Paul Maholm LHP
No designated hitter for the Pirates tonight. Their choice.
Jeff Karstans, Joel Hanrahan, Evan Meek, Chris Resop and Jose Veras also are slated to pitch for the Pirates.
Atkins is hitting .250 (4-for-16) with one homer and four RBIs.
The Orioles get left-hander Cliff Lee tomorrow when the Phillies come to Sarasota. I wonder if Josh Bell will be in the lineup?
Adam Jones is batting .350 with two homers and four RBIs this spring. Nolan Reimold is hitting .320 with two homers and six RBIs.
Former Oriole Erik Bedard gave up his first spring run today after five scoreless innings. He had allowed only one hit in those five innings.
