Orioles spoil snowy Pirates home opener with 5-2 victory

Don’t worry. It’s not suddenly 2003 again just because the Orioles played a snowy home opener. The year is still 2024, which is good since the O’s ought to be good and 21 years ago they sure weren’t. No one joined Jay Gibbons in the ranks of embarrassing weather plays. The Orioles did not need 13 innings to win the game. There wasn’t even a delay. When all was said and done, the O’s triumphed over the Pirates, 5-2.

Going into this game was an easy narrative of an interesting starting pitching matchup between one of last year’s hot pitching prospects, Grayson Rodriguez of the Orioles, and one of this year’s, Jared Jones of the Pirates.
