SARASOTA, Fla. – Friday was ABC 7 Day at the Orioles Spring Training game at Ed Smith Stadium, and fans at the game were treated to a nice rendition of the National Anthem.

ABC 7's Stephanie Roberts, co-anchor of Good Morning Suncoast, sang a beautiful rendition of the Star Spangled Banner before the game, with the big crowd giving her a rousing ovation afterward.

Her co-anchor Don Brennan was also at the game, throwing out the first pitch -- a strike.


It was a good day for the O's fans, too. The Orioles beat the Phillies 15-4.

Ubaldo Jimenez pitched two perfect innings in his debut with the Baltimore Orioles.  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.

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