Miguel Tejada hit a three-run homer in the bottom of the seventh inning to extend the Orioles’ lead to 10-4.
Tejada hadn’t gone deep since April 30 against Boston.
He hadn’t collected three RBIs in a game, let alone with one swing, since May 14 against Cleveland. He has four RBIs tonight.
He hadn’t driven in more than two runs since May 27 against Oakland.
You’d like to think that a six-run lead is safe.
The Orioles shouldn’t need any more.
Jason Berken turned in two more scoreless innings tonight, lowering his ERA to 1.76. Looks like he’s found his niche.
Pie update: Felix Pie is 2-for-4 with an RBI and a strikeout in his first game with Single-A Frederick.
