O’s prospects Manny Machado and Dylan Bundy had their say in last night’s MLB Futures Game in Kansas City, as both contributed to the U.S. team’s 17-5 win over the World team.
Bundy was far from perfect, allowing 3 hits in his one inning pitched. However, he managed to do so without giving up a single run, and because the U.S. took a lead they would not relinquish during the inning he pitched, it was Dylan who notched the “W,” despite pitching only the fourth inning.
Machado flashed some leather, snagging a soft line drive that appeared destined for left field and turning it into an easy double play in the top of the sixth. In the bottom of the same inning, he roped a 2-run double to the wall in left field for his sole hit in three at bats.
Bundy is 5-2 with a 1.87 ERA in 15 total games (eight in low A Delmarva, seven in high A Frederick) this season.
Machado is batting .264 with seven dingers, 48 RBIs and 10 stolen bases for AA Bowie.
Speaking of Bowie, get down to the Baysox game tonight if you want to see Chris Tillman start and Nick Markakis DH.
