The Royals loaded the bases in the top of the ninth, thanks entirely to Zach Britton's inability to throw a strike. With Eric Hosmer at the plate, Britton maybe sort of started throwing strikes, inducing a grounder to Steve Pearce at first, who came home with the throw for the first out of the inning.
Baltimore's closer got lifted at this point for submarine-righty Darren O'Day. O'Day faced Billy Butler, who grounded into a double play and got the Orioles out of a no-out, bases-juiced jam without any runs scoring.
Wade Davis held the Orioles scoreless for the eighth and ninth innings.
It's a Royals postseason game, so obviously that means free baseball.
