Orioles Reliever Hit On Shoulder

BOSTON (AP) — Baltimore reliever Brad Bergesen has left the Orioles’ game at Boston after taking a line drive off his pitching arm.

David Ortiz drove the pitch right back at Bergesen and the ball bounced off his right forearm and rolled quickly to the third base line.

Bergesen chased down the ball and walked back to the mound, but didn’t throw another pitch and headed back to the dugout with a trainer as right-hander Chris Jakubauskas was called in from the bullpen. The Orioles said Bergesen had a contusion to his right forearm.

Bergesen entered the game in the first inning for starter Zach Britton, who allowed eight runs as the Red Sox batted around in the first.
