Grapefruit Wrap: Orioles 15, Phillies 4

Philly.com recap
Box score

ONE UP
Catcher Cameron Rupp smoked Orioles pitcher Miguel Gonzalez in the knee with a line drive. In his next at-bat, Rupp crushed a first-pitch home run to left field. There were few bright spots Friday, and the third-string catcher was one. 

ONE DOWN
Every Phillies pitcher allowed at least one run Friday. 

QUOTABLE
"We haven't been able to play nine innings of baseball through without giving extra outs or having a crooked number go up later in the game coming out of the 'pen," manager Ryne Sandberg said. "There are a lot of things that need to be ironed out in order to give us a chance to win."
