Pirates manager John Russell plans to begin the season with his pitcher hitting eighth, a move that will shift McCutchen from leadoff to second in the batting order.
The only change Russell might make would be putting Ronny Cedeno, scratched because of lower back pain, in the lineup instead of Crosby.
Iwamura hit a three-run homer and McCutchen, Brandon Jones and Andy LaRoche had two-run shots.
Maholm tossed five innings and allowed one run and six hits.
