O's-Card's, Put One In The Win Column

Danys Baez really is trying to come back as a starter. He gave up two runs on a hit and three walks in his one inning of work against the Cardinals today, and I think it's more likely that he gets caught than that he makes the rotation.

Matt Albers, on the other hand, helped his case with two perfect innings including a K and three groundouts. Looks like he's back relatively healthy.

So is Chris Ray, who threw 9 pitches in his perfect inning.

Nolan Reimold homered, doubled, and walked - maybe he'll get a chance soon after all. So did Justin Christian, but I don't really care about him.

Scott Moore hit a three-run homer himself, helping his case for a utility spot ever so slightly (probably not).

Brandon Snyder also had a couple of hits. It would be really good if he could establish himself as big-time position prospect behind Wieters and Reimold, because the O's are lacking on that side of the ball in their farm system.

The O's got their first Spring Training win, beating St. Louis 11-3.
