Monday was a perfect day featuring the Orioles and their perfect 3 and 0 Record.
I may not go to another game this year that features the beautiful weather that the Orioles Home Opener did on Monday. The O's contributed to the great day by earning a 5-1 victory over Detroit behind a strong start by second year starter Jake Arrieta. The 25 year old right-handed pitcher was the latest young Orioles starter to deliver a quality start as their pitching staff has given up a grand total of 4 runs though 4 games.
Orioles Vet Brian Roberts provided the big offensive punch with a 3 run dinger in the 5th.
The pregame highlights included a National Guard Fly-Over and a first pitch by Hall of Fame Manager Earl Weaver.
