Zach Britton gets 22nd save of year for Orioles
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(6/26/15) Orioles closer Zach Britton earned his 18th straight save and 22nd of the year, in Friday's win over Cleveland.
Britton pitched a scoreless ninth to protect a one-run lead. Britton struck out one and gave up a hit, the third straight outing when he's allowed a base hit.
"They are not always easy I guess," Britton said. "The last couple I've had some guys on and had to work out of it. For me, guys are starting to get aggressive on that sinker so it is just about execution on that first hitter, and the last couple of times it just hasn't been there. I learned last year you go through times where it seems like you have men on each time."
Orioles closer Zach Britton locks down 21st save Thursday
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(6/25/15) Orioles closer Zach Britton worked a scoreless ninth inning during Thursday's 8-6 win against the Red Sox for his 21st save.

Thursday was just the second time in his last four outings that he didn't allow a run.

Orioles closer Zach Britton allows rare run, but still snags save
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(6/20/15) Orioles closer Zach Britton won't proclaim his 19th save of the 2015 season a thing of beauty, but he notched it nevertheless.
Britton allowed a run on three hits in the ninth against Toronto. Fortunately, he arrived with a three-run lead.
Three singles, including one that scored a run off the bat of Jose Bautista, made things interesting. But Britton induced Edwin Encarnacion to hit into a double play and end the suspense.
The run was the first Britton has allowed in five weeks, which covers 14 appearances.
|2014 summary: Starting hadn't worked out so well for Zach Britton, so the Orioles gave him a try in the bullpen coming out of spring training. A month and a half later, Britton got a shot at closing after Tommy Hunter struggled in the role. Britton was brilliant, collecting 37 saves in 41 tries and finishing with a 1.65 ERA and 0.90 WHIP. Despite a 14.0 percent swinging strike rate, Britton didn't dazzle as a strikeout pitcher, but contact resulted in a ground ball an astounding 76 percent of the time. From the time Britton recorded his first save on forward, only Aroldis Chapman and Greg Holland earned more Fantasy points among relief-eligible pitchers.
Playing time status: Look for Britton to serve as the Orioles' closer out of spring training, and there is no reason to think he'll give the job up at any point this season.
2015 outlook: Britton established himself as an elite closer last season, and while Holland and Craig Kimbrel should be taken before him, he should be one of the first six or seven closers taken off the board.
