An unidentified man was shot in the upper body last night on an East Baltimore street either by a man with whom he was exchanging gunfire or by one of two city police officers who witnessed the shootout, a police spokesman said. About 10:15 p.m., two members of the citywide tactical unit were in the 3100 block of McElderry St. when they heard gunshots and observed two men shooting at each other, said Officer Troy Harris, the spokesman. After the men failed to drop their weapons when ordered to do so, the officers drew their .40-caliber Glock semiautomatic handguns, and at least one of them fired at the gunmen, Harris said.

SARASOTA, Fla. - Orioles right-hander Jake Arrieta wasn't as concerned with the numbers on the scoreboard in Wednesday afternoon's Grapefruit League game against the Pirates as he was with the fraction-of-a-second change in his delivery. Arrieta, making his second Grapefruit League start, yielded four runs on five hits over 2 2/3 innings in the Orioles' 11-5 loss to the Pirates at Ed Smith Stadium, but he said he's still refining his mechanics after concentrating this spring on improving his time to the plate.
