Nelson Cruz homers in Baltimore debut
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Orioles left fielder Nelson Cruz got things off on the right foot with his new team Monday, going 1 for 2 with a walk, a solo home run and two runs in his team's 2-1 win over the Red Sox on Opening Day.

It was a fine debut performance for the former Ranger as Cruz keyed the offense while batting fifth behind first baseman Chris Davis. Cruz could see plenty of RBI chances this season if teams decide to pitch around the 2013 home run leader.

Nick Markakis, Nelson Cruz start in opener
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Orioles outfielder Nick Markakis (neck) and outfielder Nelson Cruz (head) were both in the starting lineup for Monday's season opener against the Red Sox.

Markakis was more questionable of the duo, as he was a game-time decision. Markakis hit leadoff, while Cruz hit fifth for Baltimore.
