Kyle Drabek sure handled himself well and was pretty impressive in his Major League debut tonight.
He leaves trailing 3-1 to Brad Bergesen and the Orioles as the O’s bat in the seventh.
He gave up nine hits and three runs, throwing 88 pitches through six frames. He showed a low 90’s fastball and two pretty good curveballs. He limited damage during a couple of jams and fanned five.
Bergesen has worked fast, throwing strikes tonight and his defense has been stellar, turning two double plays behind him. Cesar Izturis has made two outstanding plays and Nick Markakis made a leaping catch at the wall in the second.
In the latest stellar start by an Oriole, Bergy had just 69 pitches through six innings after throwing 20 in the first frame.
