Darren O'Day RP BAL 3 Months

Darren O'Day escaped trouble in the ninth inning on Thursday against the Rays, cinching his second save of the season.

O'Day put the first two runners he faced on base via singles, but induced a ground ball double play from Desmond Jennings and a weak ground out to first base by Matt Joyce to end the ballgame. Regular closer Tommy Hunter had a pair of taxing outings on Tuesday and Wednesday, which explains why O'Day was asked to close the door on Thursday. Hunter will be back in his regular role on Friday.

Darren O'Day recorded four outs against the Red Sox on Friday for his first save of the season.

O'Day relieved Brian Matusz for the final out of the eighth inning and worked around a one-out walk for a scoreless ninth inning. The Orioles were up by four runs in the bottom of the ninth, so O's closer Tommy Hunter wouldn't have been eligible for the save if he pitched. O'Day now has six scoreless outings to begin the year.
