Orioles manager Sam Perlozzo has learned to love the way his portly reliever, Chris Britton, seizes the ball night after night and peppers the plate without fear.

Britton hadn't surrendered a run since being recalled from Double-A Bowie on May 15. But a few hours after Perlozzo praised the rookie to reporters last night, one of Britton's strikes met the bat of Toronto Blue Jays right fielder Alex Rios and sailed into the left-field stands.
