Last night, the Baltimore Orioles defeated the New York Yankees in Grapefruit League action, 6-3.
The offense came through for Baltimore as Adam Jones and Matt Wieters – who has been struggling at the plate - hit homers and gave them a 4-0 edge in the first inning. They jumped all over Yankee starter Ivan Nova – who was 16-4 with a 3.70 ERA last year – and was truly off on Sunday night. He gave up five runs in four innings of work.
Meanwhile, Alfredo Simon started for the Orioles on Sunday night and left early - after the second inning – due to a groin injury. Hopefully, his injury is minor and will not impact his status making the 25-man roster.
