The Pirates scored an unearned run in the seventh against Jim Johnson, which was set up by a Matt Wieters throwing error. Wieters got the run back in the eighth with a RBI single and the Orioles added another unearned run in the ninth.

Brian Matusz is now slated to pitch Friday against Detroit, which pushes Jake Arrieta to Saturday in Bradenton versus the Pittsburgh Pirates. And that sets Arrieta up to pitch Opening Day , April 6 on five-days' rest.
