It probably didn’t matter how well Dylan Bundy pitched Saturday. When Boston Red Sox ace Chris Sale is on his game, anyone starting against him has to be better than good.
Bundy was very good for five innings. He allowed just four hits and equaled his season high with eight strikeouts. But the Red Sox reeled off four straight hits to open the sixth and knocked him out of the game on the way to a 7-2 victory over the Orioles before an announced crowd of 30,050 at Camden Yards.
Sale, who gave up just three hits over eight innings and struck out 14 in his previous start against the Orioles (21-49), wasn’t quite as overpowering this time, but Bundy blinked first.
