CALL IT A COMEBACK

The Orioles trailed the Florida Marlins 6-0 after one inning Friday and were staring at a ninth straight Grapefruit League loss. They got back into the game on the strength of three home runs, and then won it on Luke Scott's tie-breaking, two-run shot in the ninth off Marlins lefty Dan Meyer. Scott hit a solo homer in the second inning, Ty Wigginton hit a three-run shot in the third, and Ryan Freel's two-run homer in the sixth gave the Orioles their first lead.

ON DECK

In his fourth start, right-hander Adam Eaton will face Cardinals right-hander Todd Wellemeyer at Roger Dean Stadium in Jupiter, Fla., on Saturday.
