Orioles prospect Christian Walker displayed some of his power as he highlighted a three-RBI performance with a two-run home run off Danny Burawa, who began his outing by surrendering Ryan Flaherty's third-inning leadoff homer. Walker also blemished Braves starter Williams Perez with a sacrifice fly that followed Jimmy Paredes' first-inning bloop double to left field.
Former Orioles outfielder Nick Markakis notched the first of two fourth-inning singles produced by the Braves, who began their rally with Hector Olivera's sixth-inning RBI single and extended it with Daniel Castro's seventh-inning RBI double.
Perez surrendered a pair of hits and a run while totaling just 15 pitches in the first inning. The Braves limited him to one frame, because he had completed a long bullpen session this past weekend.
Up Next for the Orioles: The Orioles begin their sixth season in Ed Smith Stadium with their home opener Wednesday against the Braves at 1:05 p.m. ET. Ubaldo Jimenez will make his Grapefruit League debut, and left-fielder Hyun Soo Kim is expected to play in his second consecutive Spring Training game after going 0-for-3 in his debut on Tuesday.
Up Next for the Braves: Atlanta will its first look at two of its top four prospects during Wednesday afternoon's game against the Orioles in Sarasota. Highly-touted right-hander Aaron Blair will get the start. Top prospect Dansby Swanson is also scheduled to make the trip and experience his first big league Spring Training game. Swanson's availability is questionable, because he began feeling sick on Tuesday.
