This afternoon, the Orioles lost to the Boston Red Sox, 6-1, in Sarasota, FL.

For some pitcher, Spring Training simply serves as a warm-up for the regular season; however, for a journeyman like Dana Eveland, that is not the case. He is trying to make the Opening Day roster as a starting pitcher – or a bullpen guy. Sadly, his outing on Sunday did not help out his case.

Eveland took the loss for Baltimore and gave up three runs – only one earned – in two innings of work. Watching the game on MASN up here, I would not say he was awful, but he was extremely hittable. He perhaps may have had the shakiest outing of any Oriole pitcher so far.

On the other hand, another pitcher whose status is in limbo for  the Baltimore Orioles, Chris Tillman was much better in his outing. Tillman was shaky in a previous outing this spring; however, he threw three scoreless innings on the mound.

Who knows if Tillman can possibly make the Opening Day roster at this point; however, his Sunday helps out his cause immensely.

Baltimore pitchers Zach Phillips, Pedro Strop and Oliver Drake each pitched scoreless frames. Veteran reliever Luis Ayala allowed two runs – one earned.

Adam Jones drove in the Orioles only run in the first inning.

Jon Lester, who started the game for Boston, threw four innings. He walked four, struck out and still continued his dominance over Baltimore – ok, so this game does not. It is scary to think about, but Lester is 14-0 in the regular season against the Orioles.

The Red Sox brought a few of their regulars in the starting lineup, and they did some damage off Oriole pitching. Dustin Pedroia had two hits and drove in; meanwhile, Cody Ross drove in two runs and also had two hits.

Also, the Orioles made a round of cuts:

From the Baltimore Sun: The Orioles' first roster cuts of the spring were made Sunday afternoon, and there weren't a lot of big surprises.

Infielders Ryan Adams and Josh Bell were optioned to Triple-A Norfolk, while rookie right-hander Dylan Bundy is headed to Single-A Delmarva. Xavier Avery, L.J. Hoes, Michael Ohlman, Manny Machado, Brian Ward and Steve Johnson had been informed that they were returning to minor league camp.

Finally, let’s hope for the best with Frank Robinson. He needed medical help at today’s Lakers-Celtics’ game out in Los Angeles.

From TMZ: EMTs came to the aid of Hall of Fame baseball player Frank Robinson during today's Los Angeles Lakers games against the Boston Celtics ... TMZ has learned.

According to a witness, Robinson was attended to during the fourth quarter of the game. He appeared to be in stable condition after medical workers checked him out, which included taking his blood pressure.

Robinson left before the game ended, walking under his own power while being escorted out by a few EMTs.

Robinson, 76, had 586 career home runs during his playing days and is the only player to win league MVP honors in both the National and American Leagues.
