Nolan Reimold hit a two-run homer off Sean Green in the bottom of the sixth inning to increase the Orioles’ lead to 7-0.
Reimold has two home runs this spring. He’s also singled and walked today.
Maybe that’s why manager Dave Trembley waited to replace Reimold with Felix Pie. He knew that home run was coming.
Talk about being one step ahead.
Mark Hendrickson allowed two hits in a scoreless top of the sixth.
Update: Brian Roberts delivered another run in the sixth with a ground ball. Orioles 8, Mets 0.
Update II: Nick Markakis added an RBI single off Roy Merritt in the sixth, and Miguel Tejada followed with a run-scoring double. Orioles 10, Mets 0.
