by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

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' Zach Britton picks up eighth save Sunday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/18/2015) Orioles closer Zach Britton gave up two hits on Sunday but was able to keep any runners from scoring to secure his eighth save in his team's 3-0 win over the Angels.

Britton had been off for several days when he took the mound in a nonsave situation Saturday and gave up three earned runs on four hits in one inning of work, and though he gave up a pair of two-out singles on Sunday, he fared much better in the save opportunity.

"If anything, I was just a little strong and that's kind of been an issue with me," Britton said of Saturday's outing, per MASNSports.com. "The more rest I get, the harder it is, especially right away. They were swinging the bats early, too. All the balls they hit well were balls that were up. It's just a matter of really making a conscious effort to throw the ball down.

"It's a frustrating outing because you know that you're getting your work in, but at the same time I don't want to give up hits and I don't want to give up runs. I want to keep the game close for our offense. It was a little frustrating that I couldn't get the ball down right away.

"Once we get on a roll, the opportunities will be there. Last year, I felt like I was in the game a lot. I haven't had that yet this year. Sometimes that helps, but if anything, I think you learn that you've got to stay focused. I know when I'm not getting a lot of chances, there are things I've got to focus on when I go out there. I can't just go out there and go through the motions. I've got to make a conscious effort to get the ball down. That's big."

Britton has recorded eight saves in nine chances and owns a 3.00 ERA and 20:3 K:BB ratio in 15 innings.
