Pillar’s RBI double leads Blue Jays past Pirates 4-1

BRADENTON, Fla. (AP) — Marcus Stroman looked sharp in his first spring training outing and Kevin Pillar hit an RBI double Wednesday as the Toronto Blue Jays beat the Pittsburgh Pirates 4-1.

Stroman worked the first 1 2-3 innings and allowed an unearned run on two hits. The right-hander struck out one and threw a wild pitch.

Pirates right-hander Gerrit Cole allowed a run on one hit in two innings. Cole walked one batter and struck out three.

Vance Worley, who is vying for the No. 5 spot in the Pirates’ rotation, gave up two runs over two innings.

Pirates third baseman Josh Harrison left the game in the first inning due to left ankle discomfort. Harrison tweaked the ankle while running the bases. The injury did not appear to be serious as Harrison walked off the field.
