Bergesen's bad day
Brad Bergesen just finished what
can most certainly be called his worst outing this spring. Bergesen allowed six
earned runs on five hits and four walks over five innings. In the four starts
prior, he had yielded a combined six earned runs with five walks.
After a four-run fourth inning,
Bergesen went on to retire seven of the next eight batters he faced, before
surrendering the second of three homers. He raised his ERA over a run, to 5.59,
in the 93-pitch outing.
Bergesen, who is slotted to be
the team’s fourth starter, is expected to start the O’s home opener at Camden Yards.
