Orioles vs. Braves: Lineups & Notes 3/27/21

The O’s put on a show last night against a World Series favorite, the New York Yankees. Today, the Birds play yet another World Series favorite, the Atlanta Braves, in Grapefruit League action.

In an impressive 4-1 win last night again the Evil Empire, the pitching really shined for the Birds. Jorge López pretty much guaranteed his spot on the 26-man roster, going five scoreless innings against the primary Yankee lineup.

Tyler Wells really wants to stay in the Oriole organization, as he tossed three scoreless, hitless innings with six strikeouts. He and fellow Rule 5 pick, Mac Sceroler, both have a good chance of making this club.

The O’s will send their ace to the hill one final time this spring. John Means, the O’s Opening Day starter, will face off against the Braves’ Opening Day starter, lefty Max Fried.

Other Orioles relievers scheduled to pitch tonight are Travis Lakins Sr., Dillon Tate, Conner Greene, and Eric Hanhold.
