Orioles 8, Pirates 2: Is it seriously still Spring Training?

The Orioles finally put on an offensive show while on TV, but they decided to do it when most of their fans were at work and wouldn't be paying attention. They tallied fourteen hits, including three home runs, two doubles, and a triple. On the other side of the action, the O's pitchers allowed only two runs despite giving up fourteen hits of their own.

Pirates' starter Kevin Correia kept the Orioles off the board until the fourth inning, when four singles (Randy Winn, Felix Pie, Nick Markakis, Mark Reynolds) and a sacrifice fly (Vladimir Guerrero) scored three runs. Winn added another run against Correia in the fifth with a solo home run. The O's tacked on three more in the 7th courtesy of a Jake Fox home run, a Nolan Reimold double, and a Matt Angle single. The final run of the day came in the bottom of the 8th on another home run, this one by Nick Green. Trust me, Nick Green, that won't save you.

The Pirates got their only two runs of the day off of starter Jake Arrieta. He got knocked around a little bit, giving up 8 hits in just four innings, but he minimized the damage by striking out six and not allowing any walks. He was followed by Jeremy Accardo, who gave up no runs on three hits and a walk in two innings. Accardo was the beneficiary of an outfield assist by Nick Markakis, who threw out Andrew McCutchen at home (with a little help from the brick wall known as Matt Wieters). Jason Berken had another perfect inning, and Chris Jakubauskas closed things out with two scoreless innings.

The Orioles play yet another ST game tomorrow at 1:05, at home vs the Astros. This game will again be on MASN and will also be broadcast on MLBN for you out-of-towners.
