Matt Wieters continues to be a rock behind the plate, but has been prone to intermittent bursts of production at the plate. Fortunately for the Orioles, he picked a great time to step up on Wednesday night, driving in three runs to key a series-clinching victory over the Yankees. He also had four hits and three RBIs in Sunday's game at the Rogers Centre. Backup Chris Snyder did a good job of handling Freddy Garcia on Saturday and was 1-for-4 in his only start of the week.
