Zach Britton went seven scoreless innings and the O's toppled the Tigers 3-2 on Saturday night.
Britton (2-1) allowed just six hits and three walks, striking out five in his best outing of the season. Pedro Strop allowed two runs in the eighth but Jim Johnson shut the door and picked up his 36th save of the season. The O's improved to 50-0 when leading after seven innings...amazing.
Chris Davis provided all the offense with a three-run shot in the seventh inning, his 19th of the season.
With the win, the O's (65-55) took sole possession of the second Wild Card spot...Detroit is just one game behind them. The Birds look to take the series on Sunday afternoon; Wei-Yin Chen takes the mound.
