LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. -- Pirates second baseman Jung Ho Kang halted his recent woes with a two-hit performance that was highlighted by the two-run, ninth-inning home run he drilled off Michael Kohn during Sunday afternoon's 4-2 win over the Braves at Champion Stadium.
Braves utility man Phil Gosselin successfully executed an eighth-inning suicide squeeze bunt to score Todd Cunningham and tie the game 2-2. The Braves' only previous run had come courtesy of Chris Johnson's fifth-inning solo home run off Radhames Liz. Johnson has eight hits, including a pair of home runs, in his past 12 at-bats.
