The Orioles put their undefeated Grapefruit League record on the line against the Twins.

The only place you can follow this game live is if you have MLB Audio, which, since it's at the Twins spring training home, probably means that all you can do is listen to the Twins radio broadcast.

Spring training is pretty boring, but it's still less boring than the offseason, and every game brings us one game closer to real Orioles baseball.

Lineup

BALTIMORE ORIOLES MINNESOTA TWINS
Alexi Casilla - SS Darin Mastroianni - CF
Manny Machado - 3B Eduardo Escobar - SS
Lew Ford - DH Joe Mauer - DH
Conor Jackson - RF Josh Willingham - RF
Danny Valencia - 1B Justin Morneau - 1B
Trayvon Robinson - LF Ryan Doumit - C
Yamaico Navarro - 2B Chris Parmelee - RF
LJ Hoes - CF Trevor Plouffe - 3B
Chris Robinson - C Brian Dozier - 2B

Jair Jurrjens is making the start for the Orioles. Tommy Hunter was originally on the travel roster and now he's not, and beat writers made a big deal out of that because there's nothing better to do. He will instead pitch another day. Kevin Gausman, Zach Clark and Adam Russell have also made the trip, so I could say that we could look forward to seeing them if only the game were on any kind of video, anywhere.

Liam Hendriks is the Twins starter, and he will presumably be followed by some other guys, one at a time, because you're not allowed to have two pitchers at once.
