Formidable Opponents: The Orioles' starting lineup minus Derreck Lee, three innings of Zach Britton, the Orioles' top pitching prospect who will likely reach the majors this year, and one of Kevin Gregg.

Big Hits: A double by Melky Mesa (1-for-3) off Jeremy Accardo. Justin Maxwell walked twice in three trips. The rest of the team collected three singles and a walk.

Who Pitched Well: Everyone. Andy Sisco and Ryan Pope turned in perfect innings, Sisco striking out Nick Markakis to open the sixth. Sergio Mitre struck out three against no walks in his three innings, and one of the three hits he allowed was a leadoff bunt single by Brian Roberts. He was, however, saved by a tremendous Greg Golson throw from center to nail Mark Reynolds at the plate on the fly following a Reynolds double and Adam Jones single to start the second, but then set down the next five men on a combination of strikeouts (of Matt Wieters, J.J. Hardy, and Markakis) and groundouts. Adam Warren worked around a single and a walk in the fifth, getting all six of his outs by strikeout (Luke Scott and Wieters) or groundout. D.J. Mitchell worked around a single in each of his two innings, striking out three (Reynolds, Wieters, and second base sub Ryan Adams).

Rotation Battle: Sergio Mitre looked good in a pair of single-inning outings last week and continued to impress in his first muli-inning appearance against a solid lineup. He hasn't issued a walk or, thanks to Golson, allowed a run in five innings this spring. D.J. Mitchell had his first solid spring outing, though it likely wasn't enough to make him a contender. Adam Warren appears to be salvaging his candidacy and might hang around longer than initially expected.

Ouchies: Greg Golson seems to have pulled something in his side. He'll be evaluated on Tuesday.

Oopsies: Catcher Jose Gil booted a ball at first base.

Next: The Yankees travel to Lake Buena Vista to face the Braves for a 1:05 start that will be shown on YES live and on the MLB Network on tape delay at 7pm.
