Analysis: Though he's managed to keep his consecutive saves streak ongoing, Britton hasn't been quite as dominant as usual. The standout closer was touched for a run and three hits in the ninth inning of Friday's appearance and he's allowed 13 baserunners in seven innings. It appears that the Orioles are being precautionary and that Britton should be back when first eligible. Brad Brach is expected to fill the closer's role in the meantime.

Analysis: Britton matched Tom Gordon by converting his 54th consecutive opportunity, the second-longest streak ever. The record belongs to Eric Gagne (84).

Analysis: Britton did make it interesting by allowing a one-out single and a walk and then uncorking a wild pitch to put the tying run on third. He got Kevin Pillar to ground out without advancing the runner, however, before finishing off his fourth save of the young season. Though the standout closer owns a 1.67 WHIP thus far, he's yet to allow a run in six innings.
