Britton gets AL saves record as Orioles beat Astros 9-7

BALTIMORE (AP) Setting the American League record for consecutive saves converted requires a remarkable display of consistency.

Patience also played a part for Zach Britton, because the Baltimore Orioles closer went more than 14 weeks this season between tying the mark and breaking it.

Britton converted his 55th straight save opportunity Sunday, blanking the Houston Astros in the ninth inning to seal Baltimore's 9-7 victory.
