2009 Spring Training: Sox lose to Pirates, 3-2

The Pirates downed the Red Sox today, 3-2, when they came back and took it in the final frame off of reliver Richard Lentz. Jon Lester turned in a strong outing today, Turns out he is working in his changeup more this Spring, to see if it’s good enough to use regularly.

Takashi Saito looked good in his inning of work; he threw plenty of pitches without discomfort. Also, Junichi Tazawa had a very strong debut yesterday, setting down the side on just four pitches. The Red Sox bullpen looks like it could be ridiculously strong this year if Saito, Tazawa and Daniel Bard are ready.

Up next, Tampa Bay.
