Roberts gets two hits in first rehab game

Brian Roberts, who hasn’t played in a game since injuring his right hamstring on the third day of the season, April 4, made his first rehab start Tuesday for Triple-A Norfolk.

Leading off and playing second base for the Tides against Columbus, Roberts went 2-for-4 with two runs scored in Norfolk’s come-from-behind, 6-3 win.

In the first inning, Roberts hit a double that one-hopped the left field wall. He later scored the game’s first run on a Jason Pridie single. Roberts later grounded out, struck out and singled.

Roberts, 35, has played in just 118 games since the beginning of 2010. He hopes to re-join the Orioles within the next week. He is expected to play a minimum of three games with the Tides – and maybe more.
