The moment (updated twice)

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.
