Gonzalez, Orioles hold Mets to 1 hit in 7-1 win
BALTIMORE 7, NY METS 1

SARASOTA, Fla. (AP) -- New York Mets manager Terry Collins put it
bluntly.



"Everybody's ready to get out of here," he said.



Nate McLouth hit two home runs and the Baltimore Orioles held
the New York Mets to one hit in a 7-1 victory Saturday, the
spring training finale for both teams.



Collins was still a little stunned by the news Thursday that
left-hander Johan Santana will miss the entire season after
re-tearing the anterior capsule in his pitching shoulder. Hoping
to save his career, he'll have surgery Tuesday in New York
performed by team medical director Dr. David Altchek.



The Mets still have a roster decision to make and they'll do
that on Sunday. Backup infielder Justin Turner's strained left
calf will be examined, and if he's not ready to play, third
baseman Zach Lutz will make the team.



Dillon Gee, who allowed just two hits and struck out seven on
Monday against Atlanta, gave up three runs and six hits in four
innings. Gee, set to be New York's third starter, is lined up to
pitch against San Diego on Thursday.



"Last outing was so good, to compare it to that is pretty hard
because he was so dominant," Collins said.



Gee allowed the first of two home runs by Nate McLouth in the
third. Two innings later, McLouth connected off Jeremy Hafner,
who struggled through two innings. He allowed four runs and four
hits - three of them home runs. Chris Davis and Steve Pearce
also went deep for Baltimore.



Before the game, Pearce was told he beat out Conor Jackson for
the final spot on the team.



Hafner, scheduled to start New York's fourth game, left his
previous outing Tuesday against St. Louis when he was hit on his
pitching elbow by Carlos Beltran's one-hopper.



"He probably still has a little stiffness, but he'll be OK. We
wanted to get him a couple of innings, anyway," Collins said.



New York's offense was shut down by six Orioles pitchers. Miguel
Gonzalez, the No. 3 starter for Baltimore, gave up a leadoff
single in the fifth to Marlon Byrd, who scored on Ruben Tejada's
sacrifice fly. Gonzalez struck out four and walked one in five
innings.



"I'm happy we ended this way," he said. "I worked what I needed
to work on."



Baltimore ended the spring with a 19-9-4 record.



"We're ready. I feel good about where we are," manager Buck
Showalter said.



David Wright was 0 for 3 in his second game since sustaining a
rib injury in the World Baseball Classic.



"He's fine. It's a hard game at this level. When you take two
weeks off or three weeks off, it takes a little time to get
things back," Collins said.



NOTES: Collins said OF Kirk Nieuwenhuis has made the team. The
manager also said he would try to avoid strict platooning in the
outfield. Collin Cowgill, who Collins said hits left-handers
well, has won the center field job, and he said his opening day
lineup was nearly set. "We don't know all of it yet, but it will
be pretty similar to what today's was," Collins said. ...
Baltimore has two days off before opening the season at Tampa
Bay on Tuesday. ... Orioles CF Adam Jones got the day off. ...
The Mets open the season Monday at home against San Diego. LHP
Jonathon Niese faces Padres RHP Edinson Volquez. ... The Orioles
have set their roster by reassigning Jackson, LHP Mark
Hendrickson and RHP Jair Jurrjens to minor league camp. They are
expected to place INF Wilson Betemit (right knee), RHP Steve
Johnson (back) and LHP Tsuyoshi Wada on the disabled list
Sunday. Pearce hit seven homers and drove in 18 runs this
spring. "I did everything I could to make this team," he said.
