Wedge puts umpire issue behind him
BALTIMORE -- Mariners manager Eric Wedge said his unhappiness with the controversial call on Mike Carp pulling his foot from the bag in the 14th inning of Tuesday's 8-7 loss to the Orioles was behind him by the time he awoke Wednesday.

Wedge expressed his displeasure with umpire Brian Knight's call postgame after he'd been ejected for the first time this season, but said his son put it all in perspective later.

"Cash wanted to know why the umpire had put me in a timeout," Wedge said with a laugh.

But the skipper said he didn't stay up watching replays or anything of the sort.

"I put it to bed when I go to bed," he said. "It's just one of those things. Hey, we've got to come out here tonight and win a ballgame, that's the way I look at it. You can't turn back the clock."

The Mariners had another close play Tuesday when Miguel Olivo was called out at the plate in the sixth inning trying to score from second on an RBI single by Dustin Ackley that would have provided another big run.

"I guess depending who you talk to, he didn't tag him," Wedge said. "We couldn't really see it from the dugout. That sweep tag is a tough call there. Those sweep tags are hit or miss. But yeah, we had a tough day yesterday in that regard."
