Pittsburgh Pirates outfielder Chavez Young ran wild Sunday for Britain in the World Baseball Classic.
Young stole three bases in the Brits’ 18-8 loss to Canada in pool play at Chase Field in Phoenix. Young went 1 for 2 with two walks from the leadoff spot of the batting order and struck out once.
The Pirates acquired Young from the Toronto Blue Jays on Jan. 10 in a trade for right-hander Zach Thompson. The 25-year-old Young, a Bahamas native, has yet to play in the major leagues.
Pirates left-hander Rob Zastryzny did not pitch for Canada.
Likewise, Pirates reliever Duane Underwood Jr. did not see action for Puerto Rico in its 9-6 loss to Venezuela at loanDepot Park in Miami. Closer David Bednar did not pitch for the United States as it was upset 11-5 by Mexico in Phoenix.
