Orioles prospect Dylan Bundy finally gave up a hit

It took until his fifth professional start, but Orioles prospect and 2011 first-round pick Dylan Bundy finally gave up a hit.

Prior to yesterday low Single-A hitters were 0-for-39 against Bundy. That ended when he gave up a single to lead off the game, but then Bundy erased him on a double play and went on to throw four scoreless innings without allowing another hit.

That means through five starts hitters are 1-for-50 with two walks and 25 strikeouts versus Bundy, who has a 0.00 ERA in 17 innings at age 19.

Selected fourth overall in last year’s draft out of an Oklahoma high school, Bundy signed for a $6.25 million bonus and now has a strong argument for being the best prospect in the minors following call-ups for Bryce Harper and Mike Trout.

Neither the Pirates nor the Tigers could manage any offense during Thursday afternoon’s game at PNC Park. That is, until outfielder Corey Dickerson launched a walk-off solo home run off of Alex Wilson with one out in the bottom of the ninth inning.

Dickerson, 28, has been solid for the Pirates for the first month of the season. He’s batting .314/.348/.500 with a pair of home runs, 13 RBI, and 13 runs scored in 92 plate appearances. The Pirates acquired him from the Rays in late February in exchange for journeyman pitcher Daniel Hudson and Single-A infielder Tristan Gray.
