AttaBoy Rook!

Baltimore stopped the bleeding (at least momentarily) last night with a 3-1 victory over Seattle.  O's rookies provided much of the heroics.

In facing Seattle for the 2nd time in consecutive starts, Brad Bergesen tossed 8 innings of 5 hit, shutout baseball using only 97 pitches. Bergesen has 23 IP with 4 ER in his last 3 starts.  The first of those 3 starts coincides with the callup of catcher Matt Wieters.

Nolan Reimold hit his 7th HR in 78 ABs.  Reimold also produced an RBI single later in the game.

Last nights game was as enjoyable as the recent west coast road trip was painful. While simultaneously expecting the "other shoe to drop", I shall wait with great anticipation for Bergesen's next start.

I picked up Bergesen on Sunday based upon the Wieters effect.

I have mixed feelings about that:-)
