The O's won their 12th straight extra-inning affair after Adam Jones' bases-loaded single in the 14th inning gave the Birds an 8-7 walk-off win on Tuesday night at Camden Yards.
Zach Britton struggled early, allowing five runs in the first and another pair in the second. Britton lasted five innings, allowing seven runs (four earned) on eight hits and two walks, fanning six. Britton was the main question mark of this current rotation, and was optioned to Norfolk following the game...
The Birds battled back from two separate five-run deficits, scoring four runs in the seventh to knot the game at 7-7. Matt Wieters launched two solo homers and J.J. Hardy's three-run blast in the seventh was the big blow of the game. Nick Markakis went 4-for-7 with an RBI.
The O's go for the sweep on Wednesday night...Steve Johnson was called up from Triple-A and will make his first Major League start for the O's.
