Thought I'd check in on the  game.  https://www.mlb.com/...ore,game=533803

 

Meija threw two scoreless, and then Romero came on with two perfect innings.  K'd Caleb Joseph, Tim Beckham.  Schoop grounded out.  Next inning, Machado lined out, Adam Jones K'd, and Trey Mancini grounded out.

 

That's it!  I'm sold!  Glad we didn't sign Darvish, Lynn, or Cobb.  El Toro is ready.

Of course, old friend Tim Melville also struck out three Twins. (Two hits and a walk, also...)

Moya throws two pitches; one fly-out, one homer.  Game tied 1-1.

Typical early spring game.Twins sent almost no regulars except for pitchers.Baltimore's starting lineup almost looked regular season.Though it is early thought the first few Twins pitchers did well.

Don’t spring training box scores typically list all ABs as one pitch?

This is mostly correct. Walks are counted as 4 pitches, strikeouts are 3, any balls in play are 1.

Yeah, I screwed that Moya line up.  I knew spring training box scores were funky that way, but I thought while "watching" live I was seeing actual pitches.  Nope.

But how do we know it is not a game thread?
