Westburg hits key homer, O’s beat Red Sox 7-5 in Holliday debut

The Orioles began the Jackson Holliday era with a win, beating the Red Sox 7-5 at Fenway Park on Wednesday night.

The story coming into this game was Holliday, and for good reason. The kid has the makings of a superstar. His batting line in this game won’t look great (0-for-4, two strikeouts, one RBI), but he did it. The first MLB game is out of the way, and now he can start to settle in. As the Orioles demonstrated in this game, they don’t need Holliday to be otherworldly in order to win games. They already had plenty of talent to do that.
