He's batting .308 in 39 at-bats and leads the Orioles with 10 RBIs. JONES STAYS HOT 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.

FORT MYERS, Fla . - The pitching line wasn't pristine, but right-hander Chris Tillman seemed satisfied with his second start of the Grapefruit League exhibition season. The Minnesota Twins scored three runs in the second inning with the help of a three-base outfield error, but the Orioles answered with five runs in the top of the third on the way to a 11-5 victory on Wednesday night at Hammond Stadium. Tillman was charged with just one earned run, since Xavier Paul dropped a high fly ball in right field to allow Josh Willingham to reach third with no outs, but he did surrender four hits before working out of the inning.

Closer Mike Gonzalez told Jeff Zrebiec this morning that he's feeling better and might pitch in tomorrow's exhibition game. He had to leave his last game early because of some back soreness. Brian Roberts was back in camp this morning after returning last night from Baltimore, where he visited Hopkins back specialist Dr. Lee Riley. He will be sidelined at least a couple more days while he waits to see if the treatment he received relieves his lower back soreness. Roberts declined an interview request, probably because there isn't much more to say. He explained the situation to reporters before he left town on Sunday.

FORT MYERS, Fla. -- Predicting the path of the baseball through 26-mph winds at Hammond Stadium on Tuesday afternoon was difficult for both the Orioles and Twins. In their final road game of the spring, the Orioles lost, 9-5, while playing in a fierce wind blowing out in right field. Orioles catcher Matt Wieters and Twins left fielder Josh Willingham both hit homers that caught in the wind and drifted out. For outfielders on both teams, however, it was an adventure. For the first time this spring, the Orioles fielded a starting lineup on the road full of regulars.

The Orioles make their final road trip of the spring today -- and it is to Hammond Stadium in Fort Myers, Fla., to face the Minnesota Twins. This will be Kevin Gausman's last start for the Orioles this spring before heading to minor league camp. He'll be facing most of the Twins' regulars, but the most intriguing matchup will be Gausman versus another highly touted minor leaguer, Twins third baseman Miguel Sano. Sano, 19, is considered a Top 10 player on many prospect lists. The Orioles were close to signing the Dominican teenager when he agreed to a $3.15 million bonus with the Twins.

The Minnesota Twins brought out their best Thursday night, fielding an exhibition lineup that very likely will be the same on Opening Day. They certainly played their best, hammering starter Kevin Millwood on the way to a rain-shortened 8-3 victory over the Orioles at Hammond Stadium. Michael Cuddyer led off the second inning with a home run, and the Twins batted around to score four times in the second inning and spoil Millwood's second Grapefruit League start in an Orioles uniform.

After his last outing, likely Orioles Opening Day starter Jeremy Guthrie vowed to work on throwing more quality strikes. He said he felt that he accomplished that Sunday against the Minnesota Twins even though his final line wasn't overly impressive. In the Orioles' 3-0 loss to the Twins in front of a sellout crowd of an announced 7,924 at Hammond Stadium, Guthrie allowed two earned runs on four hits while striking out two over three innings. He threw 31 of his 41 pitches for strikes.

Six Orioles pitchers threw eight shutout innings against the Minnesota Twins on Tuesday, but it was center fielder Jeff Salazar who should be credited with the save. Salazar, a veteran signed to play center in Triple-A Norfolk, made several strong running catches in the Orioles' 3-1 win before an announced 8,232 at Hammond Stadium, including an over-the-back snag of a soaring fly ball by Michael Cuddyer to end the first inning. Salazar's grab was the key play that settled starter David Hernandez, who threw 3 2/3 scoreless innings, allowing five hits and walking one. "I told Salazar, 'As long as you catch the ones going over your head, we'll be OK,' " Hernandez joked.

FORT MYERS, Fla. -- After struggling mightily with his control in an ugly one-inning start Thursday, Orioles right-hander Jair Jurrjens acknowledged that lingering flaws in his mechanics are rooted from nagging problems with his right knee. Jurrjens, who threw two innings in his spring debut Sunday, lasted just one frame Thursday in the Orioles' 7-1 Grapefruit League loss to the Minnesota Twins at Hammond Stadium. He battled with his control throughout, allowing three earned runs on two hits and three walks.

The Orioles will head south to Fort Myers today to play the Twins for the second time this spring. The Twins will have a lineup that includes Joe Mauer, Josh Willingham and Justin Morneau, so they're playing a number of regulars. As for the Orioles, this is a game that will be difficult from a roster perspective. It will be their third game in a span of 30 hours after yesterday's day-night, split-squad doubleheader. Yesterday afternoon, the Orioles brought 12 minor leaguers over from the minor league minicamp at Twin Lakes Park.

Orioles right-hander Chris Tillman wants to throw more strikes, he wants to pitch more scoreless innings and he wants to keep himself in contention for a spot in the rotation. After Friday's 3-1 exhibition victory against the Minnesota Twins at Hammond Stadium in which Tillman allowed one run in 3 1/3 innings, the 23-year-old right-hander called his spring a "work in progress. " But Orioles manager Buck Showalter was a little more effusive about Tillman, who has allowed just three runs in 8 1/3 innings in three spring games.

Brian Matusz looked visibly shaken, pausing several times to collect his thoughts before delivering what was painfully obvious on this night. "I just didn't have it today," Matusz said after lasting just 1 1/3 innings and allowing four earned runs, five hits and three walks in the Orioles' 5-2 loss to the Minnesota Twins tonight at sold-out Hammond Stadium. "You're never happy with an early exit like that. I'm not happy, and a little frustrated. I'm upset at myself, but at the same time, it's nice to get this out [of the way]
