How it happened: A day after Michael Gonzalez stranded the bases loaded to convert a save and three days after he blew a save on Opening Day, the new Orioles closer issued a leadoff walk to Toronto's Edwin Encarnacion and then a game-tying double to Travis Snider. After a sacrifice bunt moved Snider to third, Jose Bautista drove in the eventual game-winning run with a sacrifice fly, giving the Blue Jays a 7-6 win Camden Yards in the O's home opener.

He said it: "It's definitely not the way I wanted to start off, but I have the utmost confidence in my ability. There's no doubt in my mind that I can get the job done." -- Michael Gonzalez

You said it: "He said he wanted to get the first one out of the way. It looks like that might be the only save he'll get the way he's pitching." -- Tom D., commenting on Orioles Insider
