Miguel Tejada stepped to the plate in the eighth inning tonight with two outs, the bases loaded and the Orioles down by a run.
Tejada fell behind 0-2 and flied to left.
That’s what you’d call “anti-climatic.”
Corey Patterson delivered his third RBI with an infield hit, bringing Tejada to the plate with the Marlins clinging to a 6-5 lead.
Tejada has one RBI since May 27, and it came on June 13.
This was his moment. Too bad it didn’t live up to the hype.
Instant update: Naturally, the Marlins immediately tacked on a run in the top of the ninth against Alfredo Simon.
Down on the farm: Nolan Reimold is starting at first base again for Triple-A Norfolk.
Double-A Bowie’s only runs in an 8-3 loss to Reading came from a Robbie Widlansky home run.
Steve Johnson was charged with six runs and nine hits in three innings. Just one of those nights.
