BALTIMORE — Catonsville High School graduate Adam Kolarek picked up the Opening Day win for the Los Angeles Dodgers, against the San Francisco Giants on Thursday.

Kolarek pitched an inning and two-thirds of scoreless ball, notching two strikeouts.

After graduating from Catonsville, the now 31-year-old left hander went to College Park to play with the Terps before getting selected by the New York Mets in the 11th round of the 2010 Major League Baseball Draft.

This season is Kolarek's fourth in the big leagues. So far he's compiled a 9-3 win loss record with a 3.71 career ERA between the Dodgers and Tampa Bay Rays.
