Chen pitches 2 scoreless in Orioles beat Rays 3-2

PORT CHARLOTTE, Fla. (AP) Nathan Karns is off to a nice start in his bid to win the fifth spot in Tampa Bay's pitching rotation.

The 27-year-old prospect worked two scoreless innings Thursday in a 3-2 loss to a Baltimore split squad that spoiled the Rays' spring debut under rookie manager Kevin Cash.

With lefty Matt Moore still recovering from elbow surgery, Karns and three other right-handers are the likely candidates to fill one opening in a rotation that expects to be among the strongest in the AL. Burch Smith and Matt Andriese are scheduled to pitch Friday, while Alex Colome has yet to report to spring training because of visa issues.
