Pardon the pun, but just when it looked as if the Orioles were dead, OF prospect Trent Mummey lashed a two out RBI double off of established major league veteran Jose Contreras.
The game ended as a tie by mutual agreement after 10 innings. The tie was the Orioles 5th of the spring. That ties the 2006 Los Angeles Dodgers and 2010 Chicago White Sox for the most ties in spring training. However records have only been kept since 1996.
Other notes: Tommy Hunter will start tomorrow night in Bradenton against the Pirates, with Tsuyhosi Wada starting the game at Ed Smith Stadium on Tuesday against Minnesota. Meanwhile, Wei-Yin Chez will throw 6 innings in a minor league game on Tuesday.
Manager Buck Showalter says that by tomorrow, the club may have a schedule in place for Brian Roberts’ post-spring training plans.
