Phillies on the mound: Starter Kyle Kendrick held the Orioles to two hits over four scoreless innings. Sergio Escalano allowed three runs on four hits and a walk in the fifthOrioles on the mound: Brian Matusz became the first Orioles starter to pitch through the fourth inning, allowing a run on three hits in five efficient frames. Matusz tossed just 57 pitches and didn't walk a batter, picking up two strikeouts in the process. Kam Mickolio tossed a scoreless sixth with a strikeout. Worth noting: Orioles outfielder Nolan Reimold, slowed this spring by offseason left Achilles tendon surgery, made his second start in left field, and he appeared to be running close to full bore out of the batter's box in his second at-bat. Later in the game, however, he appeared to be limping after returning to the dugout between innings.

Rollins, Ryan Howard, Chase Utley, Jayson Werth will be in the starting lineup.
