Gerard Leads Charge Against Sox
Pirates catcher Nick Gerard hit two home runs including an inside the park shot to push the Pirates past the Red Sox. Troy Forkin once again dominated on the mound with 11 strikeouts. He allowed just two hits - one to Will Hill in the first inning and one to Harper Cutler in the fourth inning. Cutler would later score in that inning for the lone Red Sox run. Gerard led the Pirates offense but the Bucs also got another multi-hit game from Sam Bogart who went 2-3 with a walk. Forkin went 3-4 and Sam Madow went 2-3 with a booming double. Dylan Sparks added a late double as well. The Red Sox got stellar outfield play from Henry Schwartz who started a double-play with a great catch and then strong throw to second base.
