Dylan Bundy hits a speed bump at Frederick

Top Orioles pitching prospect Dylan Bundy has largely cruised through his first minor league season, but he did not find the Lynchburg Hillcats very cooperative Thursday night at Harry Grove Stadium.

Pitching for High-A Frederick, Bundy struggled through the first inning, allowing two hits, a walk and a wild pitch to give up a run. He then labored through the third and gave up two runs on two more hits and a second wild pitch. By the end of the third, he had run up his pitch count to 67 and his ERA from 3.00 to 4.00.

He got the first two outs of the fourth inning before surrendering a solo homer to Hillcats catcher Braeden Schlehuber and giving way to reliever Brandon Erbe. In all, he allowed four runs on five hits and two walks over 3 2/3 innings. He threw 84 pitches, 47 for strikes.

Orioles manager Buck Showalter warned during spring training and early in the season that Bundy would have games like this, which is why they started him out at Class-A Delmarva and moved him up just a half-level after he dominated the South Atlantic League.
