BALTIMORE (AP) – Mark Trumbo hit a three-run homer, Manny Machado added a solo shot and the Baltimore Orioles beat the Cleveland Indians 5-1 on Friday night to provide rookie Dylan Bundy with his first major league victory as a starter.
Trumbo launched his 29th home run in the first inning and Machado made it 5-0 in the third. Both drives came off Trevor Bauer (7-4), who hadn’t given up more than one long ball in any of his previous 22 appearances this season.
Bundy (3-2) allowed five hits and an unearned run in five innings. Drafted fourth overall in the 2011 draft, Bundy worked in the bullpen this season before surrendering three homers over 3 1/3 innings Sunday at Tampa Bay in his starting debut.
In the encore, the right-hander struck out five and walked none. Cleveland’s lone run came in the fifth, when Abraham Almonte doubled, took third on a passed ball and scored on a double-play grounder.
Odrisamer Despaigne followed Bundy with 3 2/3 innings of three-hit ball before Zach Britton got the final out for his 31st save.
Playing at Camden Yards for the first time since the All-Star break, the Orioles improved their home record to 34-14, best in the majors.
The game had a scary moment in the seventh inning when Despaigne threw a fastball that struck Juan Uribe in the batting helmet around the left ear. Uribe stood bent over near the plate for several minutes before leaving. The team later announced that Uribe had a head contusion.
