Lee out of game; had walk and strikeout

Derrek Lee's first Orioles' game ended in the bottom of the fourth inning, when Jake Fox entered to pinch-hit.

Lee, who hadn't played this spring due to a sore right wrist, walked in his first plate appearance and later scored the Orioles' third run of the first inning. Philadelphia's Cole Hamels struck out Lee in his second trip to the plate in the second.

Lee also fielded two groundballs at first base; one unassisted, one a flip to Jake Arrieta.

He is scheduled to play again on Sunday.

Fox, by the way, doubled as a pinch-hitter, chasing Hamels from the game with the Orioles leading 4-2 in the fourth. Hamels struck out five, walked three and allowed seven hits in 3 2/3 innings. Hamels was charged with five runs when former Oriole Danys Baez allowed a RBI single up the middle to Vladimir Guerrero.
