Pirates beat Astros, yet again

I know it's Spring Training, but it still pisses me off.

Berkman, Lee and Tejada went 0x5, and Berkman scored a run on a sac fly as the Pirates beat the Astros 6-5.

Moehler was, for the most part, sharp, giving up a home run in two innings of work:

"Whether you've got a guaranteed job or guaranteed deal or whatever, I still want to go out there and pitch well," he said. "I'm not one of those guys that goes out there and works on stuff in spring training. I'm trying to get guys out."

Other highlights:
John Gall collected two singles and an RBI
Matt Kata had a run-scoring triple
Michael Bourn had a couple of hits, including an RBI triple.

Pitchers seeing action today:
Moehler (2 IP, 2H, 1 ER, 2K)
Paulino (2 IP, 2H, 1 ER, 1 BB)
Valverde (1 IP, 3H, 2 ER, 2K)
Hawkins (1 IP, 0H, 0 ER, 1K)
Byrdak (1 IP, 1H, 2ER, 1BB, 1K)
Fulchino (1 IP, 1H)
Geary (1 IP, 0H)

Bourn, Ramirez and Abercrombie each stole a base. That's two for Bourn on the Spring.
