Friday Bird Droppings: Orioles Opening Day was a resounding success

Good morning, Camden Chatters.

It’s safe to say the Orioles’ 2024 season couldn’t have gotten off to a better start.

In one of the most lopsided Opening Day victories in club history, the Birds clicked on all cylinders in an 11-3 drubbing of the Angels in front of a sellout crowd of 45,029 at Camden Yards. Despite the chilly weather, the O’s were sizzling hot, getting a complete team effort from the offense — where every starter reached base and eight of them had hits — and a brilliant performance on the mound from new ace Corbin Burnes, who was a Mike Trout homer away from six perfect innings, settling for retiring 18 of the 19 batters he faced.
