JUPITER, FLA. -- Scheduled to start yesterday's split-squad game against the Florida Marlins, Orioles pitcher Hayden Penn was held back until the fifth inning after disappointing team officials by leaving his equipment bag in Fort Lauderdale and making a return trip from Jupiter.

Jeremy Guthrie made his first spring start and went two innings. Jon Leicester replaced him and also threw two, leaving Penn to wait until the fifth.
