Baltimore - 7 Washington - 2

I watched my first Spring Training game today. Some observations:

The Good

Cabrera looked sharp over his two innings, giving up a hit, striking out two and issuing NO WALKS! Love it. Markakis went 3 for 4 including going down and golfing a sick pitch from Billy Traber for an opposite field double. Stole a base too. Love it.

The Bad

Um...nothing really.

Miscellaneous Notes

Nationals pitcher Joel Hanrahan walked 3, threw a wild pitch, gave up 3 hits and 5 runs in a third of an inning of work. Hanrahan was very wild. He makes Daniel Cabrera look like Bob Tewksbury....The Nationals announcers were annoying the hell out of me because they would not announce the O's hitters in a timely manner, sometimes not at all. I don't know who everyone is in Spring Training by number, do you? Thumbs down for Don Sutton and his partner....Adam Donachie went 1 for 3 with an RBI. From what I have seen of him, he is a patient hitter with a good eye. He is quick and looks good behind the plate, haven't seen much of his arm. No Bako yet in Spring Training and Donachie hasn't hurt himself yet in his bid for a roster spot....Tomorrow, Baltimore takes on the Mets and prodigal son John Maine. Light 'em up!
