Spring Training Game 24: Orioles vs. Yankees
* Guthrie struck out 7. Easily a Spring high for him.
* 25 year-old righty Pat Egan (no idea) struck out the side in the top of the ninth, with a solo home run mixed in.
* Adam Jones hit his 5th home run - a three-run bomb off of Javy Vazquez.
* Luke Scott also went yard was part of his two-hit night.
* Nolan Reimold doubles twice and singled.
* Matt Wieters walked and doubled, as did Brian Roberts. Miggy had a two-bagger and a single.
* As you can see, the bats were effective against Yankee pitching, knocking out 12 hits, drawing 5 walks, and putting a 7 on the scoreboard.
* The rest of Guthrie's night, as he gave up 5 runs (4 earned) on 3 hits (including a homer) and 4 walks. His ERA sits over 7.
* Mark Hendrickson got two outs and gave up a three-run homer to David Winfree (who?).
* Matt Albers also gave up a home run, and additionally allowed an unearned run to score. He did K three in 2.1 IP though, without walking a batter.
The Orioles good offensive night wasn't enough, as New York hit 4 home runs and won it 11-7. That drops the Birds to 10-14 on the Spring, but can still finish over .500 if they win out (last time I said that I forgot to count April games).
MASN is actually televising this one! Because it's against the Yankees! And Jeremy Guthrie is pitching! (That's not related to the game being on TV though, I imagine.)
