BRADENTON, FLA. (AP) - Ross Ohlendorf enjoyed facing his former team.

The right-hander pitched four flawless innings for the Pittsburgh Pirates in a 13-10 loss Saturday to a New York Yankees split squad.

Ohlendorf left with a 2-0 lead after reaching his 55-pitch limit. The Yankees tied the game in the sixth inning and broke it open with a seven-run seventh.

Ohlendorf did not allow a hit or a walk and got two strikeouts in his longest outing of the spring.

The Yankees also played a game in Tampa against the Houston Astros. But there were enough starters _ Mark Teixeira, Nick Swisher, Jorge Posada _ in the lineup to give Ohlendorf a test.
