Phil Gosselin hit a grand slam off Zach Stewart to lead the Pirates to a 6-5 win over the Orioles on Wednesday.

It'll be interesting to see which one of those two emerges as Josh Harrison's primary backup, since Harrison would seem to be a lot more vulnerable to losing playing time than any of the outfielders.
