CLEARWATER, Fla. - The Orioles' splendid spring pitching continued Saturday afternoon, and the offense provided just enough firepower for a win. Left-hander Brian Matusz threw four scoreless innings in a 1-0 Grapefruit League win over the Phillies at Bright House Field, allowing just three hits and striking out four with no walks. “He threw the ball well,” Showalter said. “His tempo was up. He was throwing the ball downhill. That's good. “There was a lot of room for improvement from his last outing,” he added.

OAKLAND, Calif. - With the nonwaiver trade deadline around the corner, we have our latest rumor about veteran right-hander A.J. Burnett pitching for the Orioles.

According to a Fox Sports report, the Orioles and Phillies have had “preliminary talks” about a trade. Let's not get ahead of ourselves here. The Orioles' rotation had a 3.17 ERA over the past 34 games heading into Saturday night.

Orioles closer Randy Myers finally arrived at his date with baseball history last night. He pitched a scoreless ninth inning to secure a 4-1 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies and became the ninth pitcher in major-league history to accumulate 300 saves.Myers had waited nine days between appearances. The Orioles had struggled offensively in between and failed to provide him with any reason to leave the bullpen. But the club -- like many who have played the bedraggled Phillies this year -- has bounced back this week, and the milestone was just a matter of time anyway.

CLEARWATER, Fla. - Left-hander Brian Matusz's second start of the spring went better than his first - a good sign for Orioles fans this spring. Matusz threw a four scoreless innings against the Phillies, allowing just three hits and striking out four with no walks. Different radar guns behind home plate clocked Matusz's fastball consistently at 90-91 mph, but he reportedly reached 94 in the final two innings. "It felt good to be able to go out there and go four innings and keep the pitch count down,” Matusz said.

World champion Philadelphia is still leading the National League East, but the team has to be looking forward to the end of interleague play.

The Phillies are coming off a sweep by the Jays, who outscored them 23-11. Philadelphia (36-28) is a dismal 13-19 at Citizens Bank Park. And the news gets worse for the Phillies.

The Orioles will host a Phillies split-squad team this afternoon at Ed Smith Stadium. Right-hander Miguel Gonzalez will make his first spring apparance for the Orioles, following starter Chris Tillman. He threw an indoor bullpen session with hitters tracking on Tuesday, and since he threw 35 pitches then, he will likely go at least two innings today against the Phillies, pitch count permitting. Tillman, making his second spring start today, allowed one hit and issued two walks while striking out one in his first start against Boston on Wednesday night.

SARASOTA, FLA. -- The Orioles roughed up right-hander A.J. Burnett - one of the team's top offseason free-agent targets - for six runs on seven hits over three innings on their way to a 15-4 Grapefruit League win over the Philadelphia Phillies. Ryan Flaherty blasted a two-run homer to straight-away center field in the second inning off Burnett and Nick Markakis was 4-for-4 with two doubles and a triple.

Brian Matusz made easy work of the Phillies early Sunday afternoon at Bright House Field, but the end result left questions about whether the Orioles left-hander will make the team's starting rotation. Matusz retired six of the first seven batters he faced, but yielded three runs in the third inning, the big hit a two-run double to center field by Jim Thome in the Orioles' 3-3 tie with the Phillies. It was the Orioles' fifth tie of the spring, tying a spring training record.

The Orioles winning their three-game series against the Phillies this weekend at Camden Yards comes down to one number. One. That's the number of runs the Orioles bullpen allowed in 14 innings of work this series. With two extra-inning games, the teams played 31 innings this series. Their starting pitchers went seven innings just once and the pen had to account for five innings in Friday's series opener, something that usually leads to trouble later on. But not with this bullpen.

SARASOTA, Fla. -- After being rained out Thursday, the Orioles will face the Phillies this afternoon at Ed Smith Stadium. We will have an interesting pitching matchup, as Ubaldo Jimenez, who signed a four-year, $50-million deal with the Orioles last month, will face A.J. Burnett, who was one of the club's top offseason targets. How's that for spring training intrigue? Right-hander Miguel Gonzalez, who was scheduled to start Thursday, will pitch in relief to get his work in. Brian Matusz, Tim Berry, Kelvin De La Cruz, Alfredo Aceves and Brock Huntzinger are also scheduled to pitch for the Orioles.

Before anyone goes off on how the Orioles came up short on another veteran free-agent pitcher, that reported $16 million guarantee that A.J. Burnett got from the Philadelphia Phillies apparently is for just one year. So, don't bother taking the Orioles to task, because that's a ridiculous price for a guy who wasn't even sure he wanted to pitch this year and didn't have a winning record in 2013. Sure, he actually had a good year in spite of that 10-11 record (3.30 ERA, 209 strikeouts)
