SARASOTA, Fla. (AP) — The Baltimore Orioles beat the Boston Red Sox 5-3 last night in exhibition baseball. Boston brought out most of its regulars, but third baseman Will Middlebrooks had a scary moment in the first inning when he appeared to injure his right wrist. Middlebrooks, who broke his wrist last August, left the game, but said it was a precaution and that he was fine.
SARASOTA, Fla. (AP) — Boston Red Sox slugger David Ortiz has left the team for a few days to return to the Dominican Republic to deal with a personal matter. Ortiz has yet to play this spring training. Before last night's game against the Baltimore Orioles, Boston manager John Farrell said Ortiz should be back by tomorrow.
TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — A Baltimore Orioles split squad beat the New York Yankees 10-7 yesterday. Brett Gardner had a three-run triple for New York. He tripled off T.J. McFarland in a four-run second that cut the Yankees' deficit to 7-4. After missing most of last season because of a strained right elbow that required surgery, Gardner could become a key this season for the Yankees' offense.
PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. (AP) — The St. Louis Cardinals routed the New York Mets 12-4 yesterday. Mets scheduled starter Zack Wheeler was scratched because of a mild oblique strain sustained while swinging a bat in the cage during pregame workouts. Starter Darin Gorski allowed four runs, three hits and three walks in two-plus innings.
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — The New York Giants have agreed to a five-year deal with left tackle Will Beatty. The deal gives the Giants some continuity on the offensive line. Beatty is entering his fifth season with the Giants. He played in all 16 games last season after missing much of training camp with a sore back.
STORRS, Conn. (AP) — Number 7 Georgetown beat Connecticut 79-78 in two overtimes last night. Otto Porter Jr.'s layup with 9.5 seconds remaining in the second overtime sealed the victory for Georgetown. It was the Hoyas' 10th straight win and first-ever at Gampel Pavilion.
