Kang, Gonzalez win starting jobs in Pirates' infield

BRADENTON, Fla. (AP) Jung Ho Kang and Erik Gonzalez have won starting jobs in the infield with the Pittsburgh Pirates.

General manager Neal Huntington said Monday that Kang has beaten out Colin Moran at third base and Erik Gonzalez has won the shortstop competition over Kevin Newman.

"It was not an easy decision because all four guys, in their own way, had legitimate claims to be the regular," Huntington said.
