The Pittsburgh Pirates slid to 4-10 in Grapefruit League preseason play on Saturday with a 5-4 loss to the Minnesota Twins.

Ivan DeJesus, Jr. homered and Brad Hawpe drove in two runs, but the Pittsburgh bullpen allowed a trio of runs over the final three innings.

The defeat followed a 6-3 loss to the Baltimore Orioles on Friday night.  Starling Marte recorded two of the Bucs’ six hits, and scored two runs in Friday’s contest.

On Sunday, the Pirates will play split squad games against both the Twins and the Orioles.
