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.

    RHP Chris Archer's primary problem Sunday, as in much of September, was a lack of slider command. When he can't throw it where he wants, and doesn't have the confidence in the changeup to throw it often, he can't win with just his fastball.

    LOUDON, N.H. — Kyle Busch saw little but billowing white smoke that engulfed the track and blinded enough drivers that it caused a tremendous wreck that notably altered the race running order.
