Orioles - 5 Twins - 3

No huge strikeout numbers but Adam Loewen shut down a Twins lineup chock full of regulars with 3 hits over 6 innings and only one run. Loewen induced 12 groundouts, struck out 2 and picked Tori Hunter off of first. It's tough to lose when you keep the ball on the ground.

Ironically, Sir Sidney shutout the O's for 6 innings while striking out 3.

Jon Knott has turned it on lately (but it's probably too late) with four extra base hits in his last two games raising his average from .192 to .265.

Nick Markakis hit another homer bringing his total to three for the spring. Markakis was slugging over .600 (!!!) for the spring coming into the game.

Mr. Reluctant and Scott Williamson were solid in relief but Chris Ray was shaky and gave up two runs. Baltimore wins it 5-3.
