Cardinals 5, Orioles 4

March 23, 2009|By PETER SCHMUCK


Ty Wigginton has been impressing the coaching staff with his bat all spring, but he had a particularly productive afternoon. He doubled home the first run in the first inning, singled in another in the second and broke a tie at 3 with a run-scoring single in the seventh. He's batting .308 in 39 at-bats and leads the Orioles with 10 RBIs.


Center fielder Adam Jones had two hits and scored two runs. He has been one of the most productive hitters of the spring, raising his average to .342. Luke Scott also had two hits, raising his Grapefruit League average to .275, and drove in a run.


The Orioles travel to Fort Myers, Fla., today to face the Minnesota Twins at 1:05 p.m. at Hammond Stadium. Right-hander Adam Eaton is scheduled to start, though there is a possibility that No. 1 starter Jeremy Guthrie will arrive back from the World Baseball Classic in time to pitch. The Twins will start left-hander Francisco Liriano.
