The left-hander didn't get out of the third inning in his last start, also against the O's. Part of that was because he hadn't pitched in some time, but part of that was his defense. This start is a playoff audition.

The rookie left-hander's been through an up-and-down first season, but he's pitched much better after his midseason struggles sent him back down. When he's on, Britton's been a solid starter with good command who's shown he can really pitch.
