Orioles power past Indians (0:48)

Eddie Matz ESPN Senior Writer 

The Orioles starting rotation still needs plenty of work, but Dylan Bundy looks like he might be a keeper. In his second career start, the former 4th overall pick notched his first W as a starter, leading the O's to a 5-1 win over Cleveland. Bundy struck out five, walked none, and didn't allow an earned run in five innings.

Trumbo smacks MLB-best 29th home run (0:24)

Eddie Matz ESPN Senior Writer 

Plenty of loud contact at Camden Yards tonight. But the loudest might have been Odrisamer Despaigne plunking Juan Uribe on the left side of the helmet. Uribe appears to be OK, but he was lifted for a pinch-runner.

The Orioles lineup is always scary, but especially when they rock the Friday black shirts: They've hit 31 bombs on Friday, most of any day.

Manny Machado went yard to dead center for his 20th tater. The Orioles are the only AL team that has three players with 20-plus jacks (Trumbo, Davis, Machado).

Huge crowd at Camden Yards to watch Orioles and Indians. Both teams contenders. Is this 90's Night?

Eddie Matz ESPN Senior Writer 

Mark Trumbo just launched a three-run bomb to put the Orioles up 3-0 on the Indians. His 29th, it breaks the tie atop the MLB homer leaderboard. It also breaks a tie between his home/away splits: He now has 14 jacks on the road, and 15 at Camden Yards.

The Orioles are angling for arms. "We're going to try to add to our rotation," said GM Dan Duquette, whose starters have a 5.06 ERA (26th in MLB). "We need some more consistency from the guys we have here. We're going to try to add to it via the trade route."

Orioles manager Buck Showalter was asked if Dylan Bundy - making his 2nd start tonight tonight - could stay in the rotation for the remainder of the season, despite the team's original plans to limit him to around 70 innings. Showalter's one-word reply: "Yes."

Singer songwriter Jenae Cherry - aka Mrs. Brad Brach - is performing before Orioles/Indians tonight (and singing the anthem). Here's a clip of her soundcheck. Even though Brach is an All-Star, manager Buck Showalter said, "She's the talent in the family."

Apparently, if you win the Platinum Glove and you're a Rawlings guy, they give you a game glove that has a rectangular platinum-colored swatch at the base of the back of the glove - the part that goes over your wrist (see blurry pic below). So...Manny Machado is playing catch with Jonathan Schoop along the 1B line before batting practice. They're goofing around with pitches (knucklers, splitters, etc.) and Schoop bounces one in front of Manny. Naturally, Manny scoops it perfectly. If not, the VIP's standing behind him would've gotten plunked. Manny turns around, looks at the VIP's, then looks back at Schoop, points to the platinum swatch, and flashes a wide ship-eating grin.

Chris Tillman proving June was a fluke

Tillman finally hit a rough patch this season last month, but July has been a different story for the right-hander. The O's have won all four of his starts this month.
