Orioles lose to the Royals 7-5, check out the latest news and notes surrounding the club.
OF Anthony Santander homered twice to drive in four runs against the Royals on Saturday. Expectations were awfully low for Santander this year after the former Rule 5 pick failed to show much in the minors last season, but he's sitting at .291/.328/.520 with 16 homers in 296 at-bats for the Orioles. Maybe he'll fade some in September after missing a lot of time in recent seasons, but he's already pretty much locked up a starting job in 2020.
SP Dylan Bundy surrendered four runs -- three earned -- in six innings Saturday in a no-decision against the Royals. Bundy ends August with a solid 4.24 ERA, 33/11 K/BB ratio and three homers allowed in 35 innings. It helps plenty that two of his six starts were against the Royals, but he also faced the Astros and Yankees in there, making it a rather positive month. He's 6-13 with a 4.96 ERA overall.
