Give him a hand

Brad Bergesen walked off the field to a huge ovation Tuesday night, courtesy of a Camden Yards crowd eager for good news and good pitching. Bergesen took a no-hitter into the fourth inning and a one-run lead into the sixth before being lifted with two outs.

The right-hander threw first-pitch strikes to 16 of the 23 batters he faced, with five of them put into play, six on called strikes and one more on a swinging strike. Baltimore scored the game’s final four runs to put things away and salt away Bergesen’s first victory.
