Cardinals 4, Orioles 2

The Orioles lost today at Roger Dean Stadium, but manager Dave Trembley was all smiles afterward.

"We pitched good enough to win,'' he said.

That's probably the best way to describe it. Brian Matusz wasn't at his best, but he turned in a quality start -- 6 innings, 3 runs -- and the bullpen held things together. Closer Mike Gonzalez gave up a run, but he might have gotten out of that minor jam if the infield had been a little tighter on a potential double-play ball.

"It was good to get Matusz stretched out,'' Trembley said. He wasn't crisp. He wasn't as sharp as he usually is, but he knows how to pitch. He knows how to pitch without his best stuff."
