Bergesen tosses seven innings in a 7-3 victory over the Kansas City Royals to pick up his seventh win of the season. The 24-year-old right-hander leaves the game, however, after being struck in the left shin by Billy Butler's line drive. "Makes you sick to your stomach," Trembley said about Bergesen's injury. "It was a sight I'd rather not relive, and I don't really want to talk about it." After the game, the Orioles trade closer George Sherrill to the Los Angeles Dodgers for two prospects: third baseman Josh Bell and right-handed pitcher Steve Johnson.
