Orioles 11, Red Wings 9, exhibition
ROCHESTER, N.Y. (AP) _ Bobby Bonilla doubled home three runs in a five-run eighth inning that gave the Baltimore Orioles an 11-9 exhibition victory over the Rochester Red Wings Monday night.
Losing pitcher Louis Fisher gave up a double to Manny Alexander leading off the eighth, then walked three batters to force in a run. Billy Ripken’s sacrifice fly tied the score 8-8 with two out, then Bonilla drilled his first hit in four at-bats to clear the bases.
Winning pitcher Espeban Yan, called up from Double-A Bowie for the game, gave up a home run to Jarvis Brown in the bottom of the eighth, then struck out four of the final six Rochester batters.
Gregg Zaun drove in three runs for the parent team and Billy Owens had three RBIs for the International League Red Wings, Baltimore’s Triple A affiliate.
