In the first game of his rehab assignment in Bowie, Javy Lopez went 2-for-5 and knocked in the winning run playing as the designated hitter.
After the game, Lopez said "the hand feels great," according to The (Baltimore) Sun. "My hand was hurting a little in batting practice, but once the game started, it was almost pain-free."
Lopez could return as soon as Monday for the beginning of the Orioles seven-game homestand. The O's will play four against Texas and three against the White Sox.
