Aledo’s Mark Swift started on the mound for the Bearcats and collected the win, pitching four innings before being spelled by Anderson and Zayne Willems. The Aledo pitchers allowed just two runs and the batting was efficient, as Bowie finished the game with nine hits to Aledo’s five.
Britton in mix for Orioles job
DUNEDIN, Fla. (AP) — Jake Arrieta made his case for a spot in the Baltimore Orioles’ starting rotation. J.A. Happ isn’t sure what’s next. Arrieta pitched three-hit ball into the fifth inning, leading Baltimore to a 3-1 win over the Toronto Blue Jays on Saturday.
Arrieta is contending with Zach Britton, who threw 3 2-3 innings of one-hit ball against Boston on Friday, Steve Johnson, who’ll pitch on Sunday against Minnesota and Brian Matusz, who may also be used out of the bullpen.
