Bergesen pitches well before taking nasty liner off knee

UPDATED 3:20 p.m. — X Rays to Brad Bergesen’s left knee are negative. It certainly is going to hurt for a little while, but apparently Bergesen is going to be OK.

The Orioles beat the Royals 7-3 in the finale of a four-game series today and Brad Bergesen was masterful in his seven innings of work.

On the last pitch of his brilliant effort, he took a nasty liner off the left knee and jetted off the field in a kangaroo hop.

Every Oriole in the lineup got at least one hit today and Aubrey Huff drove in three runs.
