Nelson Cruz doubles in loss Friday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/12/14) Orioles outfielder Nelson Cruz went 1 for 4 with a double in his team's 2-0 loss to the Blue Jays Friday.

Nelson Cruz homers in Baltimore debut
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/31/14) 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.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
