Orioles top pitching prospect Dylan Bundy just completed his third outing as a pro and he has now pitched the equivalent of a nine-inning no-hitter over his three games for the Single-A Delmarva Shorebirds.
In the first inning tonight vs. Hagerstown, the 19-year-old right-hander got a strikeout, followed by a pair of ground outs. In the second inning he got a fly out and then a pair of strikeouts. In the third he retired the first two hitters on ground outs before allowing a two-out walk before getting an inning-ending ground out.
So Bundy retired the first 26 batters he faced as a pro before allowing a two-out walk in the third inning tonight.
His line tonight: 3 IP, 0H, 0R, 1BB, 3K.
His line for the season so far: 9 IP, 0H, 0R, 1BB, 15K.
Bundy went to the bullpen to throw more under the watchful eye of Orioles director of pitching development Rick Peterson tonight after his outing ended at Salisbury's Perdue Stadium.
Trent Howard came on to pitch in the top of the fourth of a scoreless game in relief of Bundy.
