Zach Britton gave up six runs, 10 hits and two walks in six innings Monday night against the Seattle Mariners. And that’s not good.
Yet this is one of those starts where the box score didn’t show everything. Several of those hits were grounders that found holes. One catchable, broken-bat soft liner dropped in front of left fielder Nolan Reimold and helped ignite a three-run rally.
After the game, Orioles manager Buck Showalter was asked if Britton will get another start and he was noncommittal. But he also defended Britton’s outing, saying it wasn’t as if the Mariners were squaring up every pitch.
My guess is Britton will start again Saturday on...
