Royals blow up Bundy, blow out the O's

Royals blow up Bundy, blow out the O's

The Baltimore Orioles starting pitcher, a former top prospect who has struggled with injuries, allowed four home runs Tuesday against the Royals before being pulled without recording an out, setting some dubious history. The Royals are listed with a money line of +125 to win.

The Baltimore offense is putting up 3.4 runs per contest, including 3.8 per game over its last 10 games and 3.0 per game over its last five. The public betting now has 70% going on Baltimore at home today.

The Royals took batting practice off Bundy, with three of the first four and four of the first seven batters homering. Kansas City is 11-23 overall and 5-10 on the road.

Danny Duffy is getting the nod for the visiting Royals. The veteran right-hander hasn't been sharp in three straight starts, and he stands at 1-4 with a 4.89 ERA and a 1.53 WHIP in 38.2 innings logged. The left-handed Duffy is 0-4 with a 5.63 ERA and 34 strikeouts.

Kansas City (+140) is hosting this game as the underdog to Baltimore (-150) and Vegas has put the Over/Under for this night game at 8.5 runs. In the Orioles' first season in 1954, Joe Coleman gave up seven runs without recording an out in a game July 6 against the Cleveland Indians.

The last place Baltimore Orioles will host the Kansas City Royals in the second game of a three game set Wednesday night from Oriole Park at Camden Yards. That's right, this game was apparently even worse than the 12-run start that effectively ended Jeremy Guthrie's Major League Baseball career last season.

The Malaysian Election Commission and the prime minister's office did not immediately respond to a request for comment. Even with Mahathir, who is popular with Malaysia's Malay majority, the odds are stacked against the opposition.

The Orioles will turn to righty Dylan Bundy (1-4, 3.76 ERA), who has 48 strikeouts and 11 walks to his credit as well as a 1.35 WHIP.

All told, the Royals had nine hits in the inning and tied a club record with four homers.

The Orioles have won eight of Bundy's last 11 starts against a team with a losing record. Furthermore, Cashner has contained the Royals offense in his three career starts, allowing only three earned runs in 16 innings, and the Royals lineup is only hitting a combined.208 against him.

Kansas City has had a little bit of success lately, but I think that will change today on the road.

Following Bundy's departure, the Royals did not let up. He has been one of the few bright spots on the mound for the Orioles.

I am an Orioles fan and I'm completely disgusted after Tuesday's debacle.
