Player Notes
Zach Britton worked a scoreless ninth inning en route to save number 15 as the Orioles emerged victorious over the Nationals on Thursday.

Advice: It would have been a 1-2-3 inning if not for Anthony Rendon's two-out infield single. Britton, however, was able to get Jayson Werth to ground into a game-ending fielder's choice to end the contest. The 26-year-old lefty is now 15-for-17 in save chances with a 1.33 ERA, a 0.89 WHIP, and a 37/13 K/BB ratio.

Zach Britton toed the rubber after a rain delay and worked a 1-2-3 ninth inning for his 11th save in Wednesday's win over the Rangers.

Advice: The Rangers and Orioles endured a rain delay of nearly 100 minutes. After the Orioles went down quietly in the eighth, Britton came on the top of the ninth and made short work of the Rangers' 1-2-3 hitters in a 1-2-3 ninth inning, recording a pair of strikeouts in the process. The lefty has done fine work out of the 'pen this season, as he now has a 1.45 ERA, a 0.95 WHIP, and a 34/13 K/BB ratio. He's also 11-for-13 in save chances.
