A start such as the one right-hander Dylan Bundy delivered in the Orioles’ 3-0 victory over the Rays was a long time coming. The 26-year-old right-hander hadn’t completed seven innings since July 29 of last season
After being robbed of a home run for the second consecutive game Sunday afternoon, Chris Davis reached for the nearest white towel inside the Orioles dugout and waved it in surrender. Home run-saving catches don't occur very often, let alone to the same player on back-to-back days, but that's what happened to Davis.
The White Sox capitalized on a leadoff walk by Bud Norris, making his fourth relief appearance of his career and his first since 2013, as pinch-hitter J.B. Shuck drove in the winning run with an RBI double off Darren O'Day with one out in the eighth, sending the Orioles to a 3-2 loss.
Orioles manager Buck Showalter has been able to pick-and-choose how he used his bullpen against the White Sox this week mainly because he¿s received at least seven innings from his starters in each of the past three games.
Orioles manager Buck Showater is never one to overanalyze his players, so it was interesting to hear him say that right-hander Jake Arrieta was ¿lucky¿ that the Orioles¿ 5-1 loss to Detroit was being played in Comerica Park¿s expansive outfield and not Camden Yards.
