Offense & Pitching Both Click For O's

Guess it wasn't just Matt Wieters being behind the plate - Brad Bergesen is just on a roll. After games of 8 IP (0 R), 7 IP (2 R), and 8 IP (2 R), this time Berg finished things out himself. He only gave up 2 runs (on a pair of solo home runs by Dave Ross), walked 2, and struck out 3. That drops his ERA to a very solid 3.79, though his tRA is still high(it was 5.32 coming into this game).

The offense built on what it did yesterday against Derek Lowe, putting a total of 11 runs on the board. Every Oriole had a hit - and the team walked 9 times - with Ty Wigginton swinging the biggest stick. Wiggy went 3-4 with a couple home runs, drove in 3, and scored 4 times (he had 10 runs scored total for the season before today).

The 11-2 win gives the O's the series win against the Braves, and they'll head up to New York to play the Mets starting Tuesday.
