Orioles vs. Rays Game 2

Greetings from Camden Yards, where the Orioles are fresh off a 5-4 win over Tampa Bay and will play the second game of the series tonight.

*Right-hander Steve Johnson will pitch four innings in extended spring tomorrow with lefty Tsuyoshi Wada slated to go three. Johnson could go out on rehab assignment or be optioned to Triple-A Norfolk after that, while it’s assumed Wada will make at least one more start in extended.

*Cuban outfielder Henry Urrutia is expected to leave extended spring and join Double-A Bowie later in the week.

*Nate McLouth is playing tonight despite lefty Matt Moore on the mound and manager Buck Showalter said he will likely sit him tomorrow against Rays ace David Price. Nolan Reimold, who is serving at designated hitter, is expected to play left field tomorrow with Steve Pearce also getting a start.

Keep Pearce on the bench. He is another steady OUT!! We STILL need a hitting 2nd baseman and a D.H.——Quickly!!

Total classless act for the Orioles to not step aside and let the Ravens have their day in the spot light. Remember : what goes around , comes around.
