“Wonderful. A great, great feeling,” he said, savoring the awkward moment. “I came in knowing that they were probably going to take on me because a rookie coming into a big stadium, I was just focusing in on really trying to find the zone.”


Waters allowed just five base runners over eight innings in the best debut for an Orioles starter since Bob Milacki held the Detroit Tigers to one hit in eight shutout innings Sept. 18, 1988, according to the Elias Sports Bureau. Waters became just the sixth pitcher in the last 50 years to throw eight-plus innings with no runs and one hit in a major league debut, according to ESPN.com.
