Ubaldo Jimenez pitched two perfect innings in his debut with the Baltimore Orioles in their 15-4 win over the Philadelphia Phillies on Friday.

Jimenez, who signed a four-year, $50 million contract with the Orioles on Feb. 19, struck out three.

Nick Markakis was 4 for 4, including two doubles and a triple. Matt Wieters, J.J. Hardy, Ryan Flaherty and Jemile Weeks each drove in two runs. Hardy had three hits.

A.J. Burnett allowed six runs on seven hits in three innings for the Phillies, who are now 1-8-1 in spring training. Miguel Alfredo Gonzalez gave up four runs in one inning.

Baltimore's Miguel Gonzalez sustained a bruised left leg when he was hit by a line drive from Cameron Rupp in the fifth.
