Angels' Dylan Bundy: Chased in third inning

Bundy (1-7) allowed seven runs on five hits and two walks over 2.1 innings Monday, striking out three and taking a loss against Oakland. Bundy coughed up a two-run shot to Sean Murphy in the second inning but most of the damage against him came during Oakland's five-run third frame. He allowed four runs in the inning before he was removed in favor of James Hoyt, who would let an inherited runner score. Bundy has now failed to finish six innings in six straight starts and his ERA jumped once again to an unsightly 6.98 through 59.1 innings. Bundy is lined up for a home matchup with the Tigers this weekend.

Angels’ winning streak comes to an end

Unfortunately, all good things must come to an end. The Angels’ seven-game winning streak was snapped on Monday night, as they fell 8-5 to the Athletics. This game got out of reach fairly early, as Oakland had a 7-1 lead after the third inning. After having a solid stretch of starts recently, things just really fell apart for Dylan Bundy early in the game. He was pulled after only 2 1⁄3 innings and allowed seven runs to score on five hits and two walks. On the season, his ERA now sits just below seven.
