Player Notes
Zach Britton got into trouble but escaped without harm Tuesday, throwing a scoreless inning to earn the save against the Red Sox.

Advice: Protecting a three-run lead, Britton walked leadoff hitter Xander Bogaerts and gave up a double to Carlos Rivero, but he caught a break when Bogaerts was gunned down at home for the first out. He recovered to get the next two outs without incident, earning his 34th save. He's been shaky in recent outings -- Britton has allowed seven baserunners in his last four innings of work -- possibly as a result of throwing 30 more innings than last season. But he remains the O's unquestioned closer with only a few weeks left to play.

Zach Britton suffered an undeserving blown save Sunday, allowing an unearned run against the Rays.

Advice: The Rays were gifted a baserunner with a leadoff error, and a single, sacrifice and RBI groundout gave Britton the blown save. The blown save was his fourth of the season. Britton still owns a 1.82 ERA and 0.88 WHIP on the season, and Sunday's bump in the road won't do anything to change his status as the Orioles' closer.
