Game 3: Boston Red Sox 4 Baltimore Orioles 3 F
W: Felix Doubront (1-0)
L: Wei-Yin Chen (0-1)
S: Koji Uehara (1)
The GOOD: Matt Wieters. Wieters three-hit night provided some offense for the Orioles. The Birds also got their first non-home run extra bit hits, as the offense showed signs of waking up. Jonathan Schoop did a good job at second base in the field, playing a part in the Orioles turning three double plays. Zach Britton‘s stuff was dirty once again.
The BAD: Ryan Flaherty looks lost again this spring. Maybe it just takes him longer to get his bat up to speed. I don’t know, but at this point he could be the person sent down when Manny Machado comes back. Wei-Yin Chen also did not look good. He left up way too many hits, despite none of them being hit hard.
What’s NEXT: The Baltimore Orioles (1-2) head to Detroit to face the Tigers in a 1 p.m. game. Detroit is 2-0 after winning the first two against KC and the third being rained out. Anibal Sanchez (0-0) faces Miguel Gonzalez (0-0).
The Orioles will need more innings and a better job from their starting pitching as they play another one of the favorites in the AL.
