The Orioles relief corps gets a high grade just for its performance in Boston and that that crazy series opener at Tropicana Field. It's fair to pin the club's inability to win consistently over the past few months on some late inning failures, but not over the past week. The bullpen gave up just four earned runs over 27 1/3 innings (1.32 ERA) and none in 11 1/3 innings during the series victory at Fenway Park.
