Zach Britton may be the first to spit the bit in the battle for the fifth spot in the Orioles rotation. He gave up five runs before departing after one and two thirds innings for Zech Zinicola, who notched the win.
The Orioles rallied back on the strength of five Orioles solo home runs, Two from Nolan Reimold and one each from J.J. Hardy, Nate McLouth, and Chris Davis. A lone run was kncocked in by Brian Roberts and the Oriole Bullpen was flawless.
Darren O'Day and Jim Johnson also pitched today.
T.J. McFarland handled the final three frames to earn the save.
