That 900-foot foul ball by Alex Rios was a pretty good indication that Chris Britton was in big trouble. And sure enough, Rios' two-run homer broke a 3-3 tie in the seventh.

Brian Roberts is in an 0-for-18 slump. I doubt that he'll blame the groin injury.

Mike Flanagan, executive vice president of baseball operations, says Bill Rowell was "always the guy that, if he was going to be there, we were going to take him."

Flanagan believes the Orioles had a "balanced" draft today. As for which guys are closest to the majors, he mentioned some college pitchers who could come along a little quicker than the rest.

Shifting gears here, but Blue Jays reliever Jason Frasor is the brother of North Carolina point guard Bobby Frasor, in case you were wondering.
