Rodrigo Lopez turned in six scoreless innings, holding the Red Sox to two hits and walking four. Sendy Rleal replaced him and walked a batter in the seventh, but otherwise was overpowering.
Yes, I say he makes the club. Jim Brower, too, with Todd Williams headed to the disabled list.
A reader asked about Cory Morris. Sounds like the Orioles want him in the minors. He's only here this long because a certain number of pitchers are needed in camp. But he's been impressive. A scout from another organization keeps talking about him every time we bump into each other. And it's getting a little awkward.
Not the talk, the bumping.
Still no score after the seventh. Still only two hits for the Red Sox. The Orioles are stuck on five. Only the innings and pitchers change. Tim Byrdak is on the mound now.
