Found March 12, 2012 on Oriole Post:
The Baltimore Orioles this afternoon lost to their division rivals, the Toronto Blue Jays, 4-1, on the road in Grapefruit League action. Pitcher Wei-Yin Chen for the Orioles had a solid outing on Tuesday; however, he gave a run in three innings of work. So far, he’s thrown very well and has only given up one walk during the spring.

That’s a good thing, considering the problems that the Orioles have had with base runners over the past few years. At this point, let’s hope Chen stays durable and transitions well to the American style of baseball. Armando Galarraga got hit around on the afternoon as he gave up three runs in two innings. The Jays jum...

O's and Rays Tie, Hammel and Wondering About Nick Markakis

This afternoon, the Orioles and Tampa Bay Rays played to a 7-7 tie in Sarasota, FL. Baltimore’s offense this spring has been fairly anemic; however, they came through on Tuesday. They trounced Rays’ starter David Price – who went 3 2/3 innings and gave up four runs – in his outing for some early action. They scored four times in the second innings as Ronny Paulino plated...
