Brad Mills pitched decently in a spot start against the Orioles on Friday, allowing three runs on seven hits over his five innings of work.

Mills walked one and struck out one on the night. He hurled four scoreless innings to begin the ballgame, but Adam Jones connected on a three-run bomb in the fifth to inflict the damage against him. He was just filling in for Sonny Gray's turn through the rotation and will head back to Triple-A where he'll continue to provide organizational rotation depth.
