Good evening from Ed Smith Stadium in Sarasota, Fla. The Pirates will take on the Baltimore Orioles at 7:05 PM --their first of seven night games this spring (five in Florida and two in Philadelphia).
Lefty Jo-Jo Reyes will get the start for the Pirates tonight and pitch two innings. Tonight marks Reyes Grapefruit League debut this spring. Reyes will be facing his former club tonight. He spent part of the 2011 season with the Orioles (also Toronto).
Following Reyes in relief are Justin Wilson, Jared Hughes, Duke Welker, Bryan Morris, Mike Crotta and Tim Wood.
The O's will send lefty Brian Matusz to the mound. The Pirates have now faced a starting lefty (prior to tonights first pitch) twice, and will face a lefty in each of their next two games.
