Update: Red Sox 3, Pirates 1

Much to the delight of most of the people stuffed shoulder to shoulder here at McKechnie Field, the Red Sox lead the Pirates 3-1 in this rematch of the first ever World Series.
The Pirates struck first on a first-inning home run from John Bowker, but the Red Sox answered when Mike Cameron grounded a two-run double down the third-base line in the third.
Lars Anderson (God, I love that name) just homered off the Bradenton sign in right center here in the top of the fourth.
Over-under on when the crowd thins? Smart money says whenever the Red Sox remove Jason Varitek and J.D. Drew from the starting lineup.
Stick with his here on our spring training blog, or head to my other blog, Prep Rally, which garners some of the heaviest traffic on bradenton.com.
Head there to read about how well Lakewood Ranch is doing in the state's academic team standings, why so many scouts are populating Palmetto's baseball games and who the area teams will play in the Sarasota Baseball Classic, which begins Monday.
