Orioles closer Kevin Gregg made sure of that, pitching a perfect ninth and preserving a 4-2 victory over the Seattle Mariners in front of an announced 11,561 at Camden Yards.
It is Gregg's seventh save in nine opportunities. He struck out the first two Mariners and then retired Ichiro Suzuki on a soft liner to shortstop J.J. Hardy to end the game. Hardy made a terrific diving play on Carlos Peguero's liner to end the eighth.
Chris Tillman gets his second win to improve to 2-3, while Felix Hernandez took the loss, falling to 4-3.
The Orioles will go for the series sweep tomorrow night behind rookie left-hander Zach Britton.
