Bergesen done after six innings

Orioles starter Brad Bergesen had a bad beginning, a great middle, and a terrible ending to his outing against the New York Yankees tonight.

Overall, he allowed six earned runs on eight hits and two walks while striking out four over six innings.

He allowed four of the first five hitters that he faced to get hits as the Yankees raced out to a 3-0 lead in the first inning. Bergesen then retired 14 of 17 batters heading into the sixth inning.

However in the sixth, Bergesen allowed a ladoff single to Robinson Cano, a walk to Nick Swisher and after a strikeout of Jorge Posada, a long three-run homer to Russell Martin.
