    Chris Davis scores on three hits in the second.

    Gonzalez perfect through eight batters. Chris Davis then committed an error on a backhand try. His first of the pre-season Miquels strikes out the next batter.

    McLouth hit a long homer. Manny then doubled. Wieters singled Machado home.

    Davis atones for his error and strike out with a web gem play on a high Machado throw.

    Miguel finally gave up a hit. And a walk. Sacrifice fly plates the Mets' first run. 3-1. A strike out ends the inning. Gonzales has four Ks.

    Nate McLouth homered again. Kyle Hudson replaced Wieters after a two out walk. He stole second and advanced to third on a throwing error. Wasted effort. Davis homered. 

    6 to 1 Baltimore

    Matusz up to replace Gonzalez. Flaherty to SS, Hudson to CF, Teagarden at C to open the 6th. Four pitches, two outs for Matusz.  Three more pitches, all strikes. Three down.

    Steve Pearce homerd for a seventh time this Spring Training. He gets the Jake FOx award. And maybe a roster spot. Brian Roberts singled and was replaced by a pinch runner. Alexi Casilla. Two strike outs end the inning.

    Mark Hendrickson in to pitch for the Orioles with  Buck Britton at 3B, Ishikawa at 1B, Casilla at 2B. Hendrickson pitches a perfect seventh.

    Seventh inning stretch time. 7-1 Birds.

    O'Day gets two and then Asencio (who was just acquired from the Brewers) got the final strike out.

    A walk and a single go for naught.

    The Ninth inning to try to close out Spring Training with a WIN.  Jim Johnson for the first time in the ninth inning. What does he do? Gets ground balls. To second for the first out. And another. 1 to 4 to 3.  One more time, this time to short.

    Jim Johnson makes it look easy.

    Orioles Win 7-1

    Orioles end the spring at 19-9-4
