Rhiner Cruz, a Houston Astros reliever and one of just two players with major league experience on the Spanish roster, allowed three runs in one inning.
The right-handed hitting Sanchez will likely platoon at first base with Garrett Jones this season but played third base against Spain.
Gerrit Cole, the first overall selection in the 2011 draft, started and struck out six in three innings as he combined with four relievers on a five-hitter. He allowed two hits and one walk.
Darren Ford and Anderson Hernandez had two hits each for Pittsburgh.
