Ft. Lauderdale, Fla. -- For the second consecutive game, the Orioles' minor league pitchers couldn't hold a lead in the late innings. But the offense rallied to secure the win.

After the Florida Marlins tallied five runs in the top of the seventh off Baltimore prospect Mike Paradis, the Orioles rallied with four in the eighth for a 7-6 win Friday at Ft. Lauderdale Stadium.


Rick Croushore walked Admin Bigbie to score a run and then allowed a two-run single to Eli Whiteside for the decisive runs.


Abraham Nunez gave the Marlins the lead with a two-run single off Paradis and then Chad Allen followed with a towering two-run homer to center field.


The Orioles again received solid outings from their veteran pitchers as slated No. 2 starter Omar Daal allowed no hits in two innings while Pat Hentgen allowed one in his two-inning stint.


The Orioles scored three runs in the first inning when they loaded the bases against Florida's Brad Penny on singles by Brian Roberts and Melvin Mora and a walk to David Segui. Former Marlin Jeff Conine followed with a sacrifice fly. After Jay Gibbons cashed in Mora with a bouncer to second base, Tony Batista singled to left to score Segui.
