Bundy’s day unraveled quickly in the sixth, a costly fielding error leading to the Red Sox breaking open a tie game with two unearned runs and ending Bundy’s outing in the process.

Bundy fell one out short of his fourth quality start in nfl jerseys china as many outings this season, but he still put the Orioles into position to win. He hasn’t received much run support all season — the Orioles have averaged a minuscule 1.5 runs a game when he’s been in — but on Sunday it was his defense that failed him in a 3-1 loss.

“Dylan was outstanding,” Orioles manager Buck Showalter said. “Just remarkable for me to watch him plying his trade or whatever in those type of conditions. I can’t tell you how hard that is and that was impressive. I’m sure Dylan’s done a little duck hunting in his life. That’s kind of what that was like.”162

The setback was the fifth in the past six games for the Orioles (5-11), who are 3-7 in the road. Take away last week’s trip to Yankee Stadium — where the Orioles won three of four against the Yankees — and the club is 0-6 away from Camden Yards, getting swept in its opening road series in Houston and losing the first three games of its four-game series here in Boston with Monday’s Patriots Day series finale postponed because of inclement weather.

The cold offered challenges for both hitters and pitchers, and even though the Orioles have played several games in cold weather this year, this was the most extreme most Orioles players had ever seen. They prepared with three or four layers of clothing under their jerseys, wearing balaclavas to protect their heads from the elements.

Bundy (0-2) turned in another solid start — two of the three runs he was charged with were unearned — and he continued to use his slider as a quality strikeouts pitch. Five of his six strikeouts on the day came off sliders. He held the Red Sox scoreless through his first four innings, allowing just two hits and walking two in that span.
