Opening day at the Yards and the Birds win 3-2 in eleven innings. Near capacity crowd was enthusiastic through it all. Gausman pitched in and out of trouble for five plus innings. Birds scored two in the third inning and then the bats went to sleep until the end. The O’s bullpen did well. Great defensive play by Manny Machado in the top of the eleventh. Then Trumbo ended it all with a homerun in the bottom of the eleventh. Birds’ fans were hard on Donaldson, (especially) hard on Bautista, and hard on Pillar after he threw his bat into the stands twice during the same turn at bat.
