SARASOTA, Fla. -- The Orioles will make the short drive up north to Bradenton to face the Pirates this afternoon. They'll be playing at the new and improved McKechnie Field. It has undergone a $10 million facelift since last spring. There's a 70 percent chance of showers today -- and a tornado watch was in effect for most of the Tampa area, including Bradenton, until 3 p.m. -- so weather could be an issue. Chris Tillman will make his first spring start for the Orioles. He will likely go two innings.
