Alvarez homers, Pirates beat Blue Jays 8-7

DUNEDIN, Fla. (AP) Pedro Alvarez hit a three-run shot and Korean rookie Jung Ho Kang connected for his first major league homer, leading the Pittsburgh Pirates to an 8-7 win over the Toronto Blue Jays on Tuesday in the exhibition opener for both teams.

Alvarez's drive came in the first inning off Aaron Sanchez after Gregory Polanco singled and Starling Marte reached on an error by new Toronto third baseman Josh Donaldson.

Sanchez, a candidate for the starting rotation, yielded four hits, five runs - two earned - and walked one in 1 1-3 innings.
