Davis, Hardy homer in Orioles’ 9-2 win over Bucs
Question of the Day
SARASOTA, Fla. (AP) - Chris Davis had a long home run and three RBIs, J.J. Hardy hit a three-run shot and Wei-Yin Chen pitched three shutout innings to help the Baltimore Orioles beat a Pittsburgh Pirates split squad 9-2 on Sunday.
Baltimore scored 20 runs in two games Saturday against Boston and is averaging nearly eight runs per game.
“I have not looked at a stat sheet this spring - and won’t. I don’t look at them,” manager Buck Showalter said.
“I trust my eyes,” Showalter said. “I’m OK with them playing real well.”
“It’s nice to swing the bat well at any time. It’s also nice to pitch well,” he said.
In his second Grapefruit League start, Chen gave up one hit and struck out two.
“The pitching staff is really progressing on a nice pace. I’m excited about that,” Showalter said.
Edinson Volquez started for the Pirates and gave up six runs on seven hits in 2 2-3 innings. In two starts, Volquez has allowed nine runs in five innings.
Andrew McCutchen and Tony Sanchez homered for Pittsburgh.
Pirates: Volquez left without talking to reporters. Sanchez, his catcher, said he could tell Volquez wasn’t having a good day.
“Unfortunately, that was the first time I’ve ever caught him, and him and I weren’t on the same page,” Sanchez said.
