Just another terrific week for the Orioles' relief crew, which combined to go 1-0 with a 2.33 ERA.

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.
