Pirates’ Chavez Young Steals Three Bases for Britain in WBC



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.
