The game Larry Bigbie and Jose Leon hit back-to-back ninth-inning doubles off St. Louis Cardinals reliever Dave Veres, giving the Orioles a 2-1 victory and their 13th win in their past 15 exhibition games. Veres, who has been mentioned in trade rumors with the Orioles but is likely out of their price range, retired the first two hitters in the ninth inning before Bigbie doubled to left field. The arms Rodrigo Lopez, a strong candidate to make the Orioles' roster as a long reliever, started the game and held the Cardinals to one run in four innings.
