Just another terrific week for the Orioles' relief crew, which combined to go 1-0 with a 2.33 ERA. Only two of the 10 relievers who pitched over the course of the week gave up any runs at all, and only one -- Jake Arrieta -- gave up more than one earned run. Closer Jim Johnson (pictured) continued to dominate with three saves in three opportunities and Sunday became only the 11th pitcher in major league history to save at least 50 games. Very impressive.
