TORONTO, Aug. 9 (UPI) -- A rare two-run infield single by Bengie Molina in the bottom of the third inning Wednesday afternoon was the key hit as Toronto edged Baltimore, 4-3.

B.J. Ryan earned his 26th save.

Fernando Tatis, Brian Fahey and Melvin Mora all drove in a run; Fahey had two hits; while Nick Markakis had a run and two hits for the Orioles (51-64), who have lost two of their last three games.

Loser Erik Bedard (12-8) gave up four runs and seven hits in seven innings.
