Bergy much better (part 2)

Brad Bergesen struck out two in a perfect third inning.

Ryan Church flied to left, Garrett Jones took a called third strike and Ryan Doumit went down swinging.

Bergesen has struck out three in three innings, but the Pirates continue to hold a 2-0 lead. He’s thrown 35 pitches, 24 for strikes. He’s only needed 19 pitches (15 for strikes) to get through the last two innings.

Nolan Reimold bounced into a double play to end the bottom of the second. Felix Pie reached on another infield hit with two outs in the third.

Part 2: Brad Bergesen’s on a roll. He’s retired eight in a row since Luke Carlin’s double in the second, and he disposed of the Pirates in 11 pitches (eight for strikes) in the fourth.

Over in Fort Myers, Chris Tillman hasn’t allowed a hit through three innings. Adrian Beltre reached on a wild pitch after striking out.
