Orioles' Bundy gives up five runs in loss to Yankees

Dylan Bundy let in five runs in four innings and was charged with a loss to the Yankees on Wednesday. He got nailed in the third inning when all five runs came in. He surrendered an RBI-single to Giancarlo Stanton and one batter later served up a grand slam to Greg Bird. Bundy issued four walks in the brief outing, allowed five hits and struck out three. He falls to 6-9 with a 4.35 ERA and 1.31 WHIP in 18 starts. He has a very good 113:34 strikeout to walk ratio in 103 1/3 innings but has been crushed by the longball this year, having allowed 20 of them already.

Blue Jays' Gaviglio pitches well on short rest

Sam Gaviglio did a nice job pitching in just two days' rest on Saturday, allowing only one run on four hits over 3 1/3 innings against the Red Sox. Given the circumstances, it was a tremendous effort from the right-hander, and necessary to save a depleted Blue Jays' bullpen. The only run that he did allow came on a solo homer by J.D. Martinez in the fourth inning. Gaviglio wraps up his first half with a 4.58 ERA and 1.32 WHIP across 57 innings.

MLB Betting Trends

Baltimore

The Orioles are 1-10 in Bundy's last 11 starts versus the American League East.

Toronto

The Blue Jays lost four of their last five games heading into the All-Star Break.

Prediction:

The Orioles are winless in their last four games versus the Blue Jays and are just 31-65 in their last 96 games in Toronto. The Orioles are also just 11-40 in their last 51 games versus a right-handed starter and are 11-41 in their last 52 road games versus a righty as well. On the other side, the Blue Jays are 4-0 in Gaviglio's last four starts when he's coming off five or more days of rest.

 

The Pick: Toronto Blue Jays -147
