ROCH AROUND THE CLOCK

The Kickoff

March 10, 2006|By ROCH KUBATKO

Kevin Millar hit his first spring home run to tie the game at 2 in the seventh, but Josh Rabe belted a two-run homer off Marino Salas in the eighth to give the Minnesota Twins a 4-2 victory over the Orioles in Fort Lauderdale yesterday.

David Newhan reached on an infield hit and Napoleon Calzado singled in the ninth, but Nick Markakis grounded into a force at second base to end the game.

Perlozzo noted that Chris Ray had a better breaking ball yesterday. And the Orioles are really impressed with Sendy Rleal, who pitched a scoreless ninth. Sounds like Rleal has a shot to make the team. He's forcing his way into the mix.
