Orioles 6 Red Sox 2

March 16, 2009|By Dan Connolly

Reimold still hot

For the second time in two days, outfield prospect Nolan Reimold hit a solo home run in the eighth inning to help the Orioles beat the Boston Red Sox. Yesterday in Fort Myers, Fla., his shot to left-center field against Billy Traber broke a tie. Reimold, who hit 25 homers at Double-A Bowie last season, is likely headed to Triple-A Norfolk to start the season.

A spring nemesis

The Orioles might be just 15-29 against the Red Sox in the past three regular seasons, but Boston shouldn't trifle with the Orioles in the spring. The victory gave the Orioles a four-game sweep in the Grapefruit League series this year.

On deck

The Orioles will be in Fort Myers again today, this time playing the Minnesota Twins. Right-hander David Pauley will start for the Orioles, who are sending most of their regulars.
