Rays, Orioles game washed out

SARASOTA, Fla. -- The Orioles and Rays game was called off due to inclement weather in the middle of the fourth inning.

Baltimore was leading the contest, which was not long enough to be an official game, 4-3, with home runs by Adam Jones and Nolan Reimold.

O's starter Bud Norris pitched four innings and allowed three runs, including a solo homer from Rene Rivera in the top of the third.

Reimold gave the O's some early offense, opening with a leadoff homer off starter Everett Teaford's first pitch.

Reimold then doubled down the left-field line in his next at-bat, off lefty Mike Montgomery, and scored on Jones' 1-1 dinger.

The three-run homer was Jones' fourth this spring which also scored Steve Pearce, who walked.

The Reimold home run was the only run and hit Teaford allowed over his two innings.
