Bergy & Wiggy Come Through; O's Defeat Twins, 2-0

The Orioles rebounded from their sweep in New York as they beat the Minnesota Twins on the road, 2-0. Pitcher Brad Bergesen after starting off the 2010 season on a rough note and seeing himself demoted to Norfolk came back in a big way as he went scoreless 6 2/3 innings.

Although Beregesen didn't strike out anyone and gave up six hits, he showed the form that made his 2009 rookie season so successful before his leg injury. The Baltimore bullpen came out in a big way to support Bergy as reliever Will Ohman came through in a big way by striking out Jim Thome with the bases loaded in the seventh inning to quash a Minnesota rally.

Koji Uehara finally made his return to a major league mound after a rehab stint in the minors and pitched a scoreless eighth inning. Alfredo Simon pitched anti-climatic ninth inning for the save.

The Orioles' MVP so far, Ty Wigginton suppiled the offense for the squad by hitting a two-run homer (his tenth in '10) to left in the second inning.

At least for one night, fans don't have to whine and bitch about Baltimore baseball. It feels good to finally be in the win column once again.
