We're just about to get underway here at Camden Yards, but before the Orioles continue their pursuit of perfection against the Tigers, I wanted to give my quick thoughts on Zach Britton, Matt Wieters and other nuggets from the Orioles' sweep of the Rays.
Britton was solid in his first career start, allowing just one run in six innings. His pitch repertoire was impressive, and you can see why everyone is so high on this kid. But I was impressed with his moxie. He struggled with his command early, but he kept his cool and worked his way out of jams even though he didn't have his best stuff. It Britton and Brian Matusz pan out as expected, that's going to be quite the 1-2 punch atop the rotation.
