Opening Day came and went, the first game of the year, on American soil, was between the Orioles and the Los Angeles Angels. The first home run of the year came when Angles outfielder Mike Trout blasted one over the fence in left center. Unfortunately, the Angels ended up losing the first game of the year as Corbin Burnes stuck out 11 to shut down the Angels, 7-1.
