Brian Matusz; O's Lose Against Tigers

It was an ugly day at Ed Smith today as the Orioles got pounded by the Detroit Tigers, 9-1. The pitching got lit up as Brian Matusz gave up three runs – two earned – in 3 1/3 innings.

Baltimore’s bullpen wasn’t much better as Mike Ballard and David Riske both gave up three runs each in their outing. Only pitcher Josh Rupe came out unscathed, going 2 2/3 scoreless innings.

On the offensive front, J.J. Hardy hit his first homer of the exhibition season and Mark Reynolds went 2-for-3.

Miguel Cabrera – whose off the field problems have been prominently noted this month – had three hits with 2 RBIs for Detroit; meanwhile, Casper Wells had four hits, a homer and two runs driven in. Cale Iorg had three hits.
