Wieters carries strong spring into April
BALTIMORE -- Orioles catcher Matt Wieters ended last year on a roll, and he's kept right on going to start this season.

Wieters went 4-for-4 with two singles, a double and a homer in Monday's loss to the Yankees, and he raised his average on the young season to .429 with a first-inning single off Freddy Garcia on Tuesday.

Wieters tied a career high for one game with his four hits on Tuesday.

"Fortunately, toward the end of [Spring Training], I felt good," Wieters said. "It's always a good point to get going toward the end of Spring Training and get ready for the year."

Wieters entered Tuesday with two homers and three RBIs through four games, helping the Orioles to a 3-1 record.
