For the first five innings, Dylan Bundy went toe to toe with Chris Sale. The Red Sox would tie things up in the 5th and take advantage of sloppy Oriole defense in the 6th to take a 3-1 lead. That score held the rest of the way as the Orioles leave Boston without a win.
Player of the Game
- Dylan Bundy once again gave the team a great outing but received little run support. The infield defense behind him didn’t do him any favors in the 6th. His ERA is at 1.40 after 4 starts and yet he is 0-2. He deserves better. We deserve better.
- Dylan Bundy worked 5.2 innings, allowing three runs, one earned on two walks and seven hits whilst striking out six.
Highlighted hitting moments:
- Trey Mancini led the game off with a single and later scored on a double by Manny Machado.
- The Orioles recorded three hits all game, two in the first inning.
Highlighted pitching moments:
- Richard Bleier worked the final 2.1 innings of the game. Ole rubber arm didn’t allow a run and struck out three. He has a 0.75 ERA on the young season and might have quietly become the best reliever in this pen.
Highlighted fielding moments:
- Danny Valencia erred again today on a routine grounder in the 6th. Later in the inning he made a poor throw that Davis wasn’t able to scoop. An error technically wasn’t called but it might as well have been one. Needless to say, Valencia has been a liability in the field thus far and needs to pick it up while Schoop is on the mend.
