Britton's save record ends at 60 as Orioles beat A's 8-7

BALTIMORE (AP) For 60 straight appearances, Zach Britton dealt with the pleasure and pressure of fulfilling his job description when called upon to preserve a victory.

The Baltimore Orioles closer was perfect for so long, he put his name in the American League record book.

He will have to settle for that, because his run at setting the major league mark ended Wednesday amid the evening shadows of Camden Yards.
