2. Not to be lost... There were plenty of reasons to feel good about Monday's Opening Day win: the walk-off home run, the fast start, the great defense, the performance of the bullpen and more. The Orioles did have nine hits on the day facing a pitcher they've struggled against (Marco Estrada), but the bats went to sleep after taking a 2-0 lead. From the final out of the third to Mark Trumbo's winning homer, the Orioles had three singles in 26 plate appearances. The club is hoping for better in-game consistency with some of the on-base additions this past offseason.
