CLEARWATER, Fla. (AP) — Brian Matusz bounced back from a shaky spring debut, pitching four sharp innings as the Baltimore Orioles beat the Philadelphia Phillies 1-0 Saturday.

Matusz went 1-9 with a 10.69 ERA in 2011. He struggled in his first exhibition outing this year, giving up three runs and six hits in two innings to Pittsburgh.

Against Philadelphia, Matusz allowed three hits without a walk while striking out four.

Joe Blanton pitched three scoreless innings for the Phillies. The 31-year-old righty was limited to eight starts last year because of an elbow injury.

Blanton allowed four hits, struck out three and walked one.

Chris Davis greeted Phillies reliever Scott Elarton with a leadoff home run in the fourth. Elarton, who hasn’t pitched in the big leagues since 2008, retired the next 12 batters.
