FORT MYERS -- Pablo Sandoval hit his first home run of the spring and Dustin Pedroia had two hits for the Red Sox on Monday in Boston's 3-1 loss to the Pittsburgh Pirates.
The Pirates sent eight batters to the plate in the sixth inning, scoring three runs off left-hander Brian Johnson, who left the game with a sprained left big toe.
Pittsburgh right-hander Ryan Vogelsong went four innings, giving up one run on four hits with no walks and two strikeouts. The only run he allowed was Sandoval's homer with one out in the second.
"Pablo got me there. I've seen him hit that ball plenty of times," said Vogelsong, who was teammates with Sandoval in San Francisco. "He probably knew I was going up there. I knew I was going up there. It was just a matter of if I was going to get it by him or not."
Never miss a local story.
In his third spring start, Red Sox right-
hander Joe Kelly went four scoreless innings, giving up three hits and a walk with three strikeouts and a hit batter.
The Pirates made some roster moves Monday. They assigned RHP Tyler Glasnow and Jameson Taillon to Triple-A Indianapolis. RHPs Chad Kuhl and Trevor Williams, LHPs Steven Brault and Kelvin Marte, and C Reese McGuire were reassigned to the minor-league camp. Outfielder Harold Ramirez was optioned to Double-A Altoona.
