Jeremy Guthrie’s 8 scoreless innings and Brian Roberts‘ 2 RBI triple powered the Orioles to victory in 2011 opener.
The Orioles open their season in Tampa Bay with a three game series for the second year in a row. Opening day is finally here and as Kevin Gregg put it, “it’s go time, boys!”
The Orioles have officially sent Zach Britton, Brendan Harris, and Craig Tatum down to the minor leagues, though it may not be long before you see any one of them back up in Baltimore.
With Zach Britton giving the Orioles a solid outing, the offense came alive right off the bat, scoring thirteen in the first three innings.
News and notes from around the web including: Why Jake Fox’s breakout isn’t for real, mechanical changes in Matt Wieter’s swing, five prospects to watch at Delmarva and more.
Top prospect Zach Britton allowed one run in five innings while Fox, Scott, and Hardy homer to put the O’s in the win column.
Brad Bergesen kept the O’s in it early, but after a late game surge by the Rays, it was Nick Green who came up big in the 9th.
