Orioles right-hander Dylan Bundy was scratched Sunday morning ahead of what would have been his 29th start of the season in the team's home finale, with veteran right-hander Chris Tillman starting instead. But it didn't look good to give two of his top hitters off when they technically are still alive in the race and have all winter to rest. The Orioles will finish under.500 for the first time since 2011 and must put together a few wins over their final six games to avoid finishing last in the AL East. Rookie Trey Mancini has been a major bright spot in an otherwise disappointing season for Baltimore and is riding a 13-game hitting streak during which he is 18-for-54.

Bundy (hamstring) is not expected to make another start this season, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports. In addition, Bundy has already reached a career high in innings at 169 2/3. But getting blanked after that, held to six hits, did them in.
