Machado led the way offensively for the Birds as he went 2-4 with with two of the team's three RBI as he drove in his other run on an infield hit with the bases loaded.

Adam Jones played a big role in the win as well as he had two key doubles that helped lead to him scoring twice, including leading off the tenth inning with a double.

Jonathan Schoop also had two hits and a RBI in the win.

It was a bit of a surprise that the Orioles had to go into extra innings as they held a 2-1 lead entering the bottom of the eighth inning with Darren O'Day coming into the game, but as Manager Buck Showalter put it after the game, O'Day proved he was human as he gave up a game tying solo home run to Mike Zunino.

Orioles101 Minor League Spotlight: Dylan Bundy Experiencing Ups and Downs in Minor League Rehab

July 26th, 2014 at 6:30 AM
By Josh Michael

One of the most talked about names for the Baltimore Orioles over the past few years has been 2011 first round pick Dylan Bundy as he remains one of the top pitching prospects in all of baseball, but is working his way back into form from Tommy John Surgery early last season. Bundy has been working in the minor league's this summer making rehab starts and has some experience some ups and downs as he works his way back.

Bundy underwent Tommy John surgery early in 2013 after getting a cup of coffee in the big leagues with the Orioles late in 2012, just his second professional season.

Thus far in 2014, he has made seven starts with Orioles affiliates and has shown signs of returning to form, but there have been some hiccups along the way.

Overall, Bundy has posted a 3.58 ERA in his seven minor league starts and has accrued 32 2/5 innings in those starts as he has also been on a strict pitch limit for each outing. He made three starts for the short-season A Aberdeen Ironbirds and four starts for the High-A Frederick Keys.
