The #Orioles defeated the #Rays 5-3 yesterday on Kids Opening Day to finish week one of the 2016 season as the ONLY undefeated team in the Major Leagues. Yes, you read that right, the #Orioles are 5-0 and are the only team to not have lost a game. Not since 1970 have the #Orioles started a season by winning their first 5 games.
It certainly was a wild week, rain delays, cold, a postponed game and even some snow. Through it all, the #Birds persevered and put all five games in the #wincolumn.
#OPACY saw 8 home runs hit by the #Birds (3 by #Manny Machado, 2 by #Chris Davis and even 1 by the newest fan favorite, #Joey Rickard). The team’s offense has been good enough to rate second in #MLB with a batting average of .300. Even the much criticized (during Spring Training) pitching staff was better than advertised and sits a top all of #MLB with a 1.80 ERA and 1.04 WHIP.
Hitting and pitching, it’s all been there, excitement is in the air at #OPACY and the #Birds are 5-0. The “week that was” has been a very good one. Sit back #O’s fans and enjoy the ride. The #O’s are in Boston and Texas this week and let’s see what they can do on their first road trip. #LetsGoOs!
I would be remiss if I didn’t give a shout out to ALL the #Orioles employees who braved the elements and late nights last week to make the experience at #OPACY the very best in #MLB. Thank You from #WearOrangeWednesdays!
