Orioles: Hendrickson's first three
Left-hander Mark Hendrickson has given up a run on four hits through the first three innings, beguiling the Rays with his offspeed stuff and working out of a big jam in the second inning. The only run so far crossed in the first on Evan Longoria's third home run of the new year. Apparently, there isn't going to be a sophomore jinx for Longo, who has picked up right where he left off in his terrific rookie season.
Going into the fourth, Hendrickson has thrown a total of 51 pitches and he's hanging on to a 2-1 lead, but the clouds are rolling in and there is a chance that the game could be delayed by rain.
Both Orioles runs scored in the bottom of the first on a single by Melvin Mora that scored Brian Roberts and Adam Jones.
