A double by Travis Snider was the only hit the Pittsburgh Pirates managed on Monday afternoon in a 5-0 loss to the Philadelphia Phillies at McKechnie Field in Bradenton, Florida.

Pittsburgh starter A.J Burnett walked in two runs with the bases loaded.  Burnett left the game after one-and-a-third innings with the bases loaded, and was eventually charged with four runs.

Michael Young, Ben Revere and Yuniesky Betancourt each slammed two hits for the Phillies (5-5).  Young was credited with two RBIs.

It was the Bucs’ seventh loss in their last eight preseason games, and they now stand at 3-7 in Grapefruit League play.

On Tuesday, several of the Pirates’ regulars will get their first day off as a number of players will field a squad against Team Spain, who is competing currently in the World Baseball Classic.
