This one was never in doubt.

And you were worried!

Here's what Chris Ray said about his performance:

"The fact that I put myself into the situation gave me more motivation to get out of it. I was nit-picking instead of just going after hitters. I was trying to hit the black instead of just trying to get it over the outside corner. It's just one of those things. I learned from it, but I was just happy to get out of it."

And more:

"Instead of just letting it go - hitting the mitt - I was just barely on the corner. If I keep doing that, I keep missing by two or three inches."
And finally:
"I just need to go out there and let it go. I just have to learn from it."
And quickly, please.
Brian Roberts has hit safely in 15 of his last 16 games, batting .369.
You have to like tomorrow's pitching matchup - Jeremy Guthrie against Triple-A call-up Mike Bacsik. Just try to erase what Jesse Litsch did to the Orioles a few nights ago.
Erik Bedard vs. Micah Bowie on Sunday.
I'm predicting a sweep.
