Five for Friday: Orioles records that could fall in 2013
Chris Davis has been a home-run machine. Manny Machado is swatting doubles at a historic rate. Even Jim Johnson, despite his struggles, may scribble out his own name in the Orioles record book. A third of the way through the season, several players and the team as a whole are chasing single-season milestones. In this week's Five for Friday, blogger and reporter Matt Vensel looks at five club records that could fall in 2013.

Jim Johnson and his own Orioles' single-season saves record( Kenneth K. Lam, Baltimore Sun / May 8, 2013 )
After watching Johnson blow four saves in the past two weeks, some Orioles fans may think this one is a stretch. But despite his recent struggles, Johnson still has 17 saves through two months and is on pace to finish the season with 51, which would tie the club record he set in 2012. There is a chance he could top it, but not only will he need to find his form, the Orioles will also have to remain highly competitive.
