Orioles 5, Red Sox 2


FORT MYERS, Fla. (AP) - Right-hander Dylan Bundy, the Baltimore Orioles top pick in the 2011 draft, made his first Grapefruit League start Saturday night, going two innings, giving up one unearned run on a hit and two walks with a strikeout.

Bundy, who was selected fourth overall and made his major league debut in September in Boston, earned the win as the Orioles beat the Red Sox 5-2.

"Not nearly as nervous as last year," Bundy said of his first spring training start after two relief appearances. "I'm more comfortable starting because that's what I've done all my life. Coming out of the pen, I wasn't nervous in spring training. In the big leagues, I came out of the pen."

For Orioles manager Buck Showalter, the outing was another step for Bundy.

"It was a good experience for him," Showalter said. "He's 20 years old. It was just another step in the process for him."

The Red Sox got a run in the second off Bundy. Will Middlebrooks walked with one out and scored when Mitch Maier's double to right was misplayed by Conor Jackson.

"Two walks. I'm never happy with that," Bundy said of his outing. "But I left a fastball up in the zone, and he hits it down the line. Two walks is what I'm concerned with."

Bundy was relieved by right-hander Kevin Gausman, the Orioles No. 1 pick - also fourth overall - in 2012. He went three scoreless innings, giving up two hits with three strikeouts.

"I felt good, and that's the biggest thing," Gausman said. "I felt comfortable out there. It was fun. It's always fun to go out there and pitch in a place that you haven't been. It's a great atmosphere, and fun to be out there."

It was the first time the Orioles' most recent No. 1 picks have pitched in the same game.

"It was cool," Gausman said. "Obviously, we're around each other every day. We paired in about every sense by Orioles fans. Obviously, it was cool. It was kind of cool to know what inning I was going to be throwing, and obviously, I was trying to watch him getting ready for the game and not be out of the pen."

Showalter was pleased with the performance of his two high-profile young pitchers.

"I thought they both pitched well," Showalter said. "I know the attention given to those two guys because of where they were drafted."

Boston left-hander Felix Doubront went three innings, giving up two runs on four hits and a walk with five strikeouts. Doubront had been delayed at the start of spring by a shoulder ailment and conditioning issues.

"Better arm speed, better tempo to his overall game," said Red Sox manager John Farrell. "A good step and progressive step. A good day for him."

NOTES: Orioles RF Nick Markakis will have an MRI on Monday. Markakis was scratched from last Sunday's game with neck spasms, and the injury has lingered. ... Baltimore LHP Tsuyoshi Wada could start the season on the 60-day disabled list, Showalter said. Wada's recovery from last May's Tommy John surgery has gone well, but the Orioles don't want to rush him. ... Red Sox SS Stephen Drew was out of the lineup for a second day after being hit by a pitch in the helmet Thursday. He has been experiencing mild concussion symptoms and is day to day. ... Red Sox DH David Ortiz underwent an MRI on both heels Saturday. He is still making his way back from a strained right Achilles tendon that limited him to 90 games last season. The Red Sox were still awaiting the results of the MRI after the game. ... Red Sox closer Joel Hanrahan is scheduled to leave camp Sunday and return to Boston where his wife Kim is scheduled to deliver the couple's first child, a son Ryan, on Monday. Hanrahan is scheduled back in Fort Myers on Thursday. ... Orioles RHP Chris Tillman, who was scheduled to start Sunday against Pittsburgh, is being pushed back a few days because of abdominal soreness. RHP Miguel Gonzalez will start instead.
