Orioles Bullpen Blows Home Opener 8-4


What started off as a feel good day sadly went the other way. A nice start by Alex Cobb turn tragic for a less than sell out Camden Yards opener. Cobb allowed two solo homers. The Orioles went quietly through most of the latter innings.

Alex Cobb went five and two thirds innings. He struck out four and allowed five hits. Cobb walked one.

Other Pitching
Must we? Mike Wright, just awful. He gave up three and the lead. John Means pitched scoreless. Mychal Givens left two on for Miguel Castro – Who cleared the bases serving up a Luke Voit homer.

Jonathan Villar homered to lead off the day. He singled as well. Renato Nunez had two singles. So did Joe Rickard. Dwight Smith doubled. Hanser Alberto pinch singled for Chris Davis off of Zack Britton.


A double play and a pick off.

Michael Williams
Michael Williams has been an Orioles fan since the sixties when his family moved from Reading Pa to York Pa. Also, the Phillies and 1964. His Grandfather got the Chef Boyardee box seats and Mike was hooked. Brooks Robinson calls him not a fan, but a friend. He has been a member of the Orioles Hangout since early in the New Millennium and Managing Editor since 2011. Or so it seems. He lives in Harrisburg PA, down by the river. Not currently in a van.
