Shorebird of the week 4-12-2007

April 12, 2007 · Posted in Delmarva items, Delmarva Shorebirds, Sports 

This photo from last June shows Brad Bergesen in a flaming Harley uniform. On Sunday he was just that hot in securing Delmarva's first win of 2007.

At the conclusion of last season I wrote about this week’s Shorebird of the Week:

When healthy, (Brad) Bergesen was as solid as any of the other starting pitchers Delmarva sent out; in fact, of the group he likely had the most pinpoint control – allowing just 10 walks in 86 1/3 innings. But Bergesen lost two large chunks of the season to various maladies and that put a damper on what was otherwise a decent season. Bergesen finished 5-4 with a 4.27 ERA and typical of a pitcher who stays around the plate, gave up 97 hits in that 86 1/3 innings…Brad is another pitcher who I’m thinking the Shorebirds will be counting on in 2007, at least to begin the season.

On Sunday Brad proved me to be a prophet as he picked up Delmarva’s first win of the 2007 season. Bergesen threw six sparkling shutout innings, allowing just 4 hits and 2 walks. Obviously his sinker was effective as Legend batters amassed 12 ground outs (vs. 2 flyouts) and the Shorebirds racked up 3 double plays on the day. So the Orioles’ 4th pick in the 2004 draft out of California’s Foothill H.S. gets the nod as Shorebird of the Week.

More starts like this and somebody in Frederick will soon be picking Brad as the Key of the Week.
