It's Only March 1st...

The Pirates first official game of Spring Training 2007 ended with the Bucs going down, but they went down swinging. The Reds hit five home runs as a team, one by Adam Dunn and one by former first pick Josh Hamilton, en route to a 9-7 win today in Bradenton.

What Went Right: Andrew McCutchen homered in his first at-bat and he later doubled finishing 2-4. Luis Matos, who many consider likely to make this team when it breaks camp, hit two home runs. Jack Wilson had two hits and the Pirates stole two bases

What Went Wrong: Four Pitchers, all of whom will open the season in Pittsburgh, gave up at least a run. Zach Duke, Tom Gorzelany, John Grabow and Saloman Torres were all touched up, with Torres giving up four runs in one inning. Jack Wilson made his first error of the season.
