Wednesday game observations

It's a major-league day in the Triple-A game with stopper Rafael Soriano starting with Dan Wheeler and Randy Choate to follow.

Jake McGee answering the bell in the Double-A game with a three-up, three-down first inning.

Triple-A, 1st: Soriano struggled, Justin Ruggiano with a nice hit-and-run just before Dan Johnson hits his third homer in two days.

Double-A, 2nd: Cody Cipriano with an RBI groundout. Rays up 1-0.

Triple-A: Former Biscuits first baseman Rhyne Hughes is playing right field for the O's. Talked to him earlier and will post something after the game.

Double-A, 4th: Greg Sexton hits two-run single and Ryan Royster a two-run triple.

Dubs, 5th: Jake McGee gives up his first runs, two of them in fact, so it's 5-2.

Double-A: McGee done after five. Those were the first runs he's allowed in 15 spring innings, he said.

Trips, 6th: Fernando Perez sac fly ties it 3-3. In Double-A, it's 8-2 in the 7th.

Triple-A, 7th: Hughes hit a no-doubt, two-run shot off Heath Phillips to break a 3-3 tie.

Double-A final: Rays win 8-3. Baltimore had some pitching left, so they played a bottom of the ninth. Tampa Bay scored four runs, highlighted by a Reid Fronk two-run double, but they don't count on the score.

Triple-A final: 5-3 Orioles.
