Brandon Morrow allows 5 runs over 3 innings, Blue Jays lose 6-4 to Pirates
DUNEDIN, Fla. – Brandon Morrow allowed five runs and six hits over three innings in the Toronto Blue Jays' 6-4 loss Wednesday to the Pittsburgh Pirates.
Morrow was making his second appearance since a season-ending forearm injury last May. On Feb. 28, the right-hander gave up two hits and one run in two relief innings.
Travis Snider had a first-inning RBI single and a two-run homer in the third off Morrow.
Pittsburgh's Jeff Locke was scratched from his start because of right side tightness. The Pirates believe the injury is a minor one.
Edwin Encarnacion had a two-run double for the Blue Jays.
