Christian Bergman will take the mound on Tuesday for the first time in June.

His May will go down as probably the most bittersweet in Sky Sox history.

In that month, Bergman made his starts, pitching a Pacific Coast League-best 40 2/3 innings and compiling a 2.21 ERA. He struck out 25, walked nine and gave up 30 hits.

He also went 0-3.
The Sky Sox scored no runs in the 40 2/3 innings while Bergman was on the mound. That’s right. Zero.

The calendar turns for Bergman on Tuesday. Surely he’d like to continue his personal run, but it would sure be nice for him if his teammates could manufacture some runs of their own.
