The Washington Times Daily - - SPORTS - From wire dis­patches and staff re­ports.

BAL­TI­MORE | Mark Trumbo home­red with two outs in the 11th in­ning, and the Bal­ti­more Ori­oles beat the Toronto Blue Jays 3-2 Mon­day for their sev­enth straight open­ing-day vic­tory.

Trumbo con­nected off Ja­son Grilli (0-1) on a 1-2 slider. When he reached the plate, the reign­ing ma­jor league home run king was drenched in wa­ter by team­mates and cheered heartily by those re­main­ing from a sell­out crowd of 45,667.

The game was re­match of last year’s AL wild card play­off, won by Toronto 5-2 on an 11th-in­ning home run by Ed­win En­car­na­cion.
