The teams announced the trade Tuesday night. The Pirates got left-hander Stephen Tarpley.
Analysis: The 26-year-old Snider hit .264 with 13 home runs and a career-best 38 RBIs in 140 games for the Pirates last season. He was a first-round draft pick by Toronto in 2006. Snider has hit .246 with 50 homers in his major league career. He can provide outfield depth for the Orioles after they lost Nick Markakis and Nelson Cruz to free agency in the offseason.

Analysis: Snider will be better remembered for a witless baserunning blunder that saw the Bucs run into a double play in the sixth inning. Pittsburgh had runners on second and third when Chris Stewart walked with one out. Snider had left second base, apparently thinking it was a bases-loaded walk. He got caught in a rundown and Gaby Sanchez broke for home with both runners being tagged out as the rally ended in a play that will be endlessly replayed in blooper reels forever.

Both benches cleared when Gomez and Pirates starting pitcher Gerrit Cole got in a shouting match after Gomez tripled off the wall with two outs in the third inning. Cole, upset with Gomez for flipping his bat after hitting the ball, stormed toward third base after Gomez slid in safely.
Analysis: Gomez took a couple steps toward Cole before players from both dugouts and the bullpens entered the field. Gomez and Snider shoved one another before Gomez fell to the ground. Pirates catcher Russell Martin had to be restrained by teammate Gaby Sanchez as he walked off the field.
