Orioles O's open game in historic way with three jacks

Quote:
For the first time in American League history, a team opened with back-to-back-to-back home runs. Orioles Ryan Flaherty, J.J. Hardy and Nick Markakis staked Baltimore to a 3-0 lead in the bottom of the first inning of a 6-5 win in Game 1 of Thursday's doubleheader against Texas.

"Nothing surprises me when you're dealing with this level of skill," Orioles manager Buck Showalter said. "These are the best players in the world, but they're also human beings who are susceptible to things and capable of doing great things. It's always an honor to sit there and watch them. There's not a day that goes by that something doesn't happen."

All three homers came within the first eight pitches from Rangers starter Colby Lewis. Flaherty's blast to right on a low fastball was his first career extra-base hit. Hardy's shot to left, the farthest of the bunch, came on a fastball down the middle. Markakis completed the trifecta with his homer to right, on an 0-2 slider.

It was the least they could do after Hamilton ripped them a new one.
