GameThread: Rays @ Orioles, 1:05 p.m.

The Rays and O's meet for the third time this spring in only their 7th game. In a year or two when the Orioles are really good and the Rays are really good, sports writers will get all excited about their spring match ups and how it could foreshadow their bitter rivalry during the season. Or something.

Chris Tillman starts for the Orioles; Jeff Niemann for the Rays. Tillman was perfect his last time out, retiring all six batters he faced and striking out three. Niemann has made one appearance this spring, also against the Orioles. In two innings he allowed just one hit, a home run to Felix Pie.

Relievers on deck for the Orioles today are Cla Meredith, Dennis Sarfate, and Alberto Castillo. Scheduled for the Rays: Jeremy Hellickson, Carlos Hernandez, and Randy Choate.

The game will be broadcast on 105.7 The Fan and XM176. If you're near a TV you can watch Stephen Strasburg's Nationals debut on MASN.
