Player Notes
Zach Britton struck out the side in the bottom of the 10th inning to earn the save against the Mariners on Sunday.

Advice: His most recent outing was a continuation of Britton's dominance of the American League in recent days, as he's thrown 4 1/3 perfect innings with eight strikeouts in five appearances since a blown save on July 18. The southpaw has a 1.71 ERA, 0.89 WHIP and 46/14 K/BB ratio in 52 2/3 innings on the year, and he's got one of the best jobs around closing for the AL East-leading Orioles.

Zach Britton is unable to fully straighten his right arm after being hit with a comebacker during Monday's contest.

Advice: Thankfully, Britton throws with his left arm. Still, it's possible that he might not be available for a day or two. Britton will test out his range of motion prior to Tuesday's game before his availability is determined. Tommy Hunter or Darren O'Day would be options to close if Britton isn't ready.

Zach Britton worked a scoreless ninth inning on Monday to earn save No. 17 as the Orioles emerged victorious against the Angels.

Advice: Britton has worked a pair of perfect appearances since blowing the save and taking the loss by allowing three runs without retiring a batter Friday against the A's. Since June 21, those three runs are the only runs he's yielded. He's given up runs in only three of 34 appearances since the start of May. Britton boasts a stellar 1.81 ERA and 0.95 WHIP.

Zach Britton took a blown save and a loss after giving up three runs without retiring a batter Friday against the A's.

Advice: The first two-thirds of it was a total fluke; Yoenis Cespedes hit a little roller down the third-base line too slow for Manny Machado to make a play on and Brandon Moss broke his bat on a bloop single into right. The three-run homer than Josh Donaldson hit was more convincing, but on another night, that might have come with two out and the bases empty. The rare misstep ends a streak of 10 straight scoreless appearances from Britton. He's given up runs in three of 32 appearances since the beginning of May.
