BRADENTON, Fla. (AP) — Russell Martin hit his fourth home run of a torrid spring training Monday, but Steve Pearce and Michael Almanzar each hit two-run homers to lead the Baltimore Orioles to a 7-6 victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates.
Martin singled and hit a two-run drive off Orioles starter Chris Tillman. In six games this spring, Martin is 8 for 15 with nine RBIs. He did not hit a home run in three of his previous four spring trainings with the Pirates, New York Yankees and Los Angeles Dodgers.
Steve Clevenger hit a solo home run off Pirates starter Jay Jackson.
Tillman worked 3 1-3 innings and allowed five runs on five hits. He struck out four and hit a batter.
