After two and a third perfect, Steve walks the bases loaded. Longoria doubled on a misplay by Trayvon Roinson and three runs score. He pitched fourth inning scorelessly.
The Orioles AA/AAA lineup rallied for two runs in the top of the fifth.
Jair Jurrjens replaced Johnson for the fifth.
Pridie doubled and Teagarden singled. The tying run scored on a throwing error. Schoop hit a two run mamoth homer. Orioles lead 5-3.
Jurrjens pitches a clean sixth.
Steve Peace homers to lead off the seventh. 6-3. His fifth homer of the spring.
Jurrjens did a good job of locating his fastball. Very Agressive. Good sign. Three perfect innings with three strikeouts. He come back out for his fourth inning. Spotting everything that he wants, getting a lot of ground ball outs. First hit off him is an infield grounder that Buck Britton is unable to transfer properly. That's all they got off him. He went back for the ninth. After one out, Jair deflected a ball that Schoop almost made a play on. Infield hit. Double play to end the game.
Orioles win 6-3, Jurrjens pitches five scoreless innings.
