Here are some post-game quotes after the Orioles' 6-4 win against the Houston Astros.

Chris Tillman on his performance (three runs, one earned, in 3 2/3 innings): "I went out there and wanted to build off last start. I went out there last start and felt great working on the new things. I wanted to go out there and continue it. This time, I saw more results as opposed to last time."

Zach Britton on his performance (four scoreless innings): "I wasn't nervous again. That's been two games where I haven't really felt nervous. More just excited to be out there and get deep into games. I was trying to build up to 4, 5, 6 innings in the next couple of outings. If I get a couple more outings, then I'll have to get deeper in the game."

Tillman on the duo's friendship: "I think the friendship part is a good part of it. We're there for each other in battle, and at the same time, pushing each other to do the best that we can. I think that's a real important role in baseball -- especially for the younger guys."

Brandon Snyder on his 3-for-5 game: "Every time you get a chance to play, you want to prove something. With the competition we have in camp, it is tough to get those opportunities, and when you do have a day like this, it kind of helps you feed into your next one."
