“I had enough.” Vladdy then left the game.

Gardenhire said the Twins were tired from playing a regular game and a “B” game with Justin Morneau on Tuesday.

“It was an ugly start, and they just kept banging away, and we didn’t get to hit enough, and they got to play a lot of defense,” Gardenhire said. “That normally doesn’t work out too well, so it was a kind of all-around ugly day.”

Jake Arrieta, 6-6 in his rookie season with the Orioles, allowed one run and three hits in three innings, giving up Luke Hughes’ third home run.

“I’m getting more comfortable in game situations, guys in the box, the atmosphere of just being in more of a big league setting, just getting more comfortable around in the zone with all my pitches,” Arrieta said.

NOTES: Gardenhire said that Morneau will make his spring training debut on Friday against Boston. “We’ll move him in slowly,” Gardenhire said. Morneau, who hasn’t played since last July, due to a concussion. “He felt great this morning, I’m letting the doctors tell me the days, and I’ll follow the schedule,” Gardenhire said. … Twins OF Ben Revere didn’t play due to a cut on his foot. … Baltimore 2B Brian Roberts was out with back spasms. Roberts said they weren’t related to the herniated disk that caused him to miss most of last season. … Orioles 1B Derrek Lee was scheduled for an MRI on his sore wrist. … Baltimore INF Cesar Izturis was out for a second straight day with an injured left ankle.
