FORT MYERS, Fla. (AP) -- Twins pitcher Liam Hendriks exited early after being struck in the hand by a batted ball Tuesday, but Minnesota's still went on to a 9-5 win over the Orioles.
Baltimore's Nick Markakis went 1 for 5 as the designated hitter in his first exhibition game since March 1 after recovering from a herniated disk in his neck.
For Minnesota, Hendriks, still in the mix for the back end of Twin's rotation, gave up four hits and fanned two in 2 2-3 scoreless innings until a ball hit by Brian Roberts struck him in the pitching hand.
Hendriks had swelling in his right hand but said he expected to throw his normal bullpen session Thursday.
Nate McLouth got three hits and scored twice for Baltimore.
