Arrieta allows two hits, no runs against Twins

The Baltimore Sun

The Orioles couldn’t have asked more from Jake Arrieta in his first Opening Day start.

The 26-year-old right-hander allowed just two hits and two walks while striking out four batters in seven scoreless innings.

Only two runners reached second base against Arrieta – and both were with two outs.

He threw 97 pitches, 60 of them for strikes. He consistently hit in the mid-90s with his fastball and his slider was particularly sharp.

Matt Lindstrom is in to pitch the eighth, making his Orioles’ debut.
