Spring Training Game 13: Orioles at Twins

David Hernandez has been K’ing over two batters an inning coming out of the pen for the O’s this Spring, but he’ll get the start against the Twins today.

The Good:

* Hernandez scattered 5 hits in 3.2 IP, walked one and struck out just two, but he kept the Twins off the board.

* The bullpen was solid, giving up just one run on3 hits and a walk while striking out 6 in 5.1 IP.

* Robert Andino and Justin Turner – batting in the 1-2 spots in the line-up – each went 2-4, I’m just afraid that success will encourage Dave, even though this was clearly a B-team type line-up.

* Chad Moeller also picked up a couple of hits, including a home run.

The Bad:

* Not much offense from the middle of the line-up, but it’s not a big deal.

The O’s are on a little bit of a roll, winning 3-1 and improving to 5-8 on the Spring.
