The Orioles held another "kids run the bases" promotion after today's game. A voice in the press box bellowed: "They're just re-enacting all the runs Bruce Chen has allowed this season."

It wasn't my voice. I swear. But yes, I laughed. It's been a long season. Any comic relief is welcomed.

As for the 9-2 loss, Orioles starter Erik Bedard kept trying to paint the corners, but there were too many runs.

Think about it.

Oh well, let's move on.

If Bedard had gotten a strike call on Vernon Wells in the first inning, maybe it's a different outcome. Wells walked with two outs, and Troy Glaus launched a cutter 360 feet for a 2-0 lead.

Bedard is 0-3 with a 5.76 ERA in five starts against the Blue Jays this season.

Brandon Fahey is pretty sure he hit a fastball up the middle for a single in the sixth inning that ruined Roy Halladay's bid for a perfect game. But everything Halladay throws has so much movement, Fahey can't be certain.

Miguel Tejada, who belted his 22nd homer, has hit safely in nine straight games. Tejada says he's been more patient at the plate.

His range at shortstop certainly has improved, most likely because his knee is feeling better.
