End of 5: Pirates 3, Tigers 2

Fans pack in McKechnie Field for Wednesday's lone night home game this spring. JASON DILL/

Through the first five innings, it's been a tight Grapefruit League contest. The Pittsburgh Pirates took a 2-0 lead in the bottom of the second inning through Tony Sanchez's two-run home run. Detroit answered back with two runs in the fourth inning, the tying run came when Charlie Leesman, who was relieving Pittsburgh starter A.J. Burnett, walked Jordan Lennerton with the bases loaded.
However, Neil Walker scored the go-ahead run in the bottom of the fourth inning on a wild pitch.
