Shifting positions: After moving from first base to outfield last year, Jose Osuna is playing third base this spring. Osuna was in a defensive shift when Rasmus grounded to short in the fifth, fielding it cleanly for a putout.
Six pack: The Orioles had a six-run fourth inning off relievers Jack Leathersich and Damien Magnifico. Tim Beckham had an RBI double, Trey Mancini a two-run single and Manny Machado hit a three-run homer.
