Correia outpitches Lee, Pirates beat Phillies

BRADENTON, Fla. (AP) -- Cliff Lee allowed two home runs in 4 2-3 innings and was out pitched by Kevin Correia, who allowed one hit in four scoreless and led the Pittsburgh Pirates to a 3-2 win over the Philadelphia Phillies on Friday.

Starling Marte, the Pirates' top outfield prospect, took Lee deep in the game's first at-bat and later singled against the former Cy Young winner, making his third start of the spring. Lee allowed three runs on five hits and a walk. He struck out five.

Correia, Pittsburgh's opening-day starter last year, breezed through a Philadelphia lineup without most of its stars. Hunter Pence was one of only a few Phillies regulars in the lineup, and he struck out twice in three at-bats.

Pirates reliever Evan Meek did not allow a run for a second consecutive outing.
