Orioles' winning streak snapped by the Braves
ATLANTA – Orioles left-hander Brian Matusz's outing on Friday night came down to one batter — and specifically one pitch — against a rookie shortstop playing in just his 12th game in the major leagues. Matusz spent most of the night dodging disasters against the Braves at Turner Field, making key pitches to get critical outs. With two outs in the sixth, he was one out away from getting a quality start — and inched closer to his fifth win in his last seven decisions.
