The Pirates will play the first night game in McKechnie Field history when they face off against the Yankees tonight at 7:05. Matt Morris will start against Phil Hughes, with Phil Dumatrait, Byung-Hyun Kim and Damaso Marte also slated to pitch.
Freddy Sanchez will make his first spring appearance in the field. Sanchez has been battling lingering pain from shoulder surgery. The shoulder has not bothered him at the plate, as he has hit .368/.405/.447 while serving as the teamís designated hitter.
