Yesterday's Game: The Bucs played small ball and tossed the cowhide well in a 5-2 win over the O's. Phil Gosselin had three hits and Starling Marte reached three times with a pair of knocks and a HBP. Gerrit Cole looked good in his first start with a bit of rust but a solid hook and Hutch worked three good frames. Tyler Glasnow reverted from a golden first outing, falling behind hitters and walking a pair in 1-2/3 IP. He and pup Miguel Rosario each surrendered a run. Jared Lakind closed it out.
