Heading into Wednesday night's start in Lynchburg, Dylan Bundy had never gone deeper than five innings in a professional game.
But his 6 2/3 innings of work in High-A Frederick's 7-1 win over the Hillcats showed that the Orioles' top prospect was ready for the increased workload.
Bundy allowed one unearned run on two hits with two walks and eight strikeouts.
He retired 16 of the final 17 batters he faced and left with two outs in the seventh after reaching a predetermined pitch count, according to the Keys' twitter feed.
Bundy is now 5-3 with a 2.57 ERA in 10 starts with Frederick. (He didn't allow an earned run in his first eight starts of the season with Low-A Delmarva.)
