Chris Snyder to the DL, Wyatt Toregas Called Up

As expected, the Pittsburgh Pirates have placed Chris Snyder on the 15-day disabled list, and have purchased the contract of catcher Wyatt Toregas from AAA.  Earlier today we heard that Toregas had been removed from the Indianapolis roster, replaced by Kris Watts.

The offense supported him with scores in four different innings to win 6-3. Morton gave up hits to the first two hitters – Jimmy Rollins and Placido...
