"I thought he did OK," said Orioles bench coach John Russell, who managed the road split-squad team with manager Buck Showalter in Sarasota. "He left some balls up, but he pitched inside pretty well today. He battled some good hitters and it was encouraging. Hammel, he has great stuff. I think the day went well for him. He gave up more runs than he probably wanted to, but as far as what he wanted to do and accomplish today, I think he did that."
