Orioles Magic is Back

By: Shannon Stern

 

          It is springtime again and you know what that means…the O’s are back! Monday, March 31st marked the first game of the season. The Orioles took on the reigning World Series Champions, the Boston Red Sox, at home for a late-afternoon game. Not only was this the first game of the year, this was a game against the Red Sox, the World Series champions, a division rival, and an always-hated enemy of the boys in Orange.

         

          By the bottom of the second inning, the game changed. Nelson Cruz became the scorer of the day. Delmon Young grounded into a double play, leading Cruz to score for the first time in the ball game and for the first time as an Oriole. With that, the Orioles took the lead. Two innings later, the Red Sox struck back. Grady Sizemore, in his first game back in the major leagues since September of 2011, hit a home run, his first since July of 2011.

    

          As inning after inning ticked by, the time was drawing closer for a big play to be made. After the seventh inning stretch, Cruz was up to bat again. With the swing of the bat, Cruz hit a 365 foot home run, bringing the Orioles back to the lead.

         

          With over 46,600 people in attendance at Camden Yards, over 100% capacity, the fans in Birdland were hungry for a win to start the season. Tommy Hunter took to the mound, looking to take home the victory for the O’s. The crowd was on their feet, cheering on the home team. It was finally Jackie Bradley Jr.’s turn at bat. He struck out looking, causing all of Baltimore to erupt in cheers.

         

          What an amazing start to the season! Not only is this a win on Opening Day, this was a win over the Red Sox. Things are looking up for the boys of Baltimore! Let’s go O’s!
