O's starter Bundy baffles Rangers

BALTIMORE — Dylan Bundy took a no-hitter into the sixth inning for the second game in a row, Pedro Alvarez hit two of Baltimore's four solo homers and the Orioles beat the Rangers 5-1 on Tuesday night in a duel between AL division leaders.

Making his fourth career start, Bundy pitched seven sparkling innings against a potent lineup featuring newcomers Carlos Beltran and Jonathan Lucroy.

Bundy retired the first 10 batters before issuing a fourth-inning walk to Ian Desmond, who was thrown out trying to steal as Beltran struck out. Elvis Andrus ended the rookie's no-hit bid with a line drive up the middle with two outs in the sixth.

Bundy capped his outing with a 1-2-3 seventh, the farthest he has gone in the majors. Facing the team with the AL's best record, the right-hander didn't allow a runner past first base.

In his previous outing, Bundy — the fourth overall pick in the 2011 draft who has come back from elbow and shoulder injuries — retired the first 16 batters against the Rockies before giving up three runs in the sixth.

Texas closed to 4-1 in the eighth against Brad Brach before Darren O'Day struck out Desmond with the bases loaded and two outs.

The Orioles won their second straight after a five-game skid that temporarily dropped them out of first place in the AL East.
