Orioles can’t get the offense going in 4-1 loss to Royals

On a cold, dreary night at Camden Yards, the Orioles played a soggy, uninspiring game against the Royals. Starter Cole Irvin had an underwhelming season debut and the Orioles’ bats were completely shut down by Alec Marsh, who last year pitched to a 5.69 ERA in 17 games. The end result was a 4-1 loss in a pretty forgettable game.

Cole Irvin is in the starting rotation because of the injury to Kyle Bradish and the delay to John Means’s season, and he didn’t have his best night. Irvin began giving up hits almost immediately, although in his defense they were nearly all ground ball singles to start.
