BALTIMORE -- For five innings, Dylan Bundy showed why the Baltimore Orioles have long considered him to be their top pitching prospect.Although things came apart in the sixth inning of a 3-1 loss to the Colorado Rockies on Wednesday night, the Orioles took consolation in knowing the right-hander added another significant step in his development as a big leaguer.Bundy (3-3) retired the first 16 batters before issuing a walk to Mark Reynolds. That brought another former Oriole to the plate, Nick Hundley, who launched a 1-2 pitch into the left-field seats for a 2-0 lead.Two batters later, David Dahl chased Bundy with his first major league home run.Just two mistakes, changeups that were up in the zone and they were able to tag them for homers, the 23-year-old Bundy said. Maybe just a little more focus or location a little bit better in the sixth inning and you get out of that with six innings pitched and no harm done.Making his third major league start, Bundy went deeper into a game than ever before and notched a career-high eight strikeouts.Dylan was really good, Orioles manager Buck Showalter said. Got to get into another inning that he hadnt been into, got to throw a couple more pitches than hed thrown.Unfortunately for the Orioles, Colorado rookie right-hander Jon Gray (7-4) was even better, allowing only one run and five hits over seven innings.We knew coming in that he was good, Showalter said of Gray. He pounded the ball, a lot on the inner half.After Manny Machado hit his 21st homer in the sixth, Baltimore didnt get another runner into scoring position.Adam Ottavino and Boone Logan worked the eighth for the Rockies and Carlos Estevez got three straight outs for his 10th save, tops among major league rookies.The AL East-leading Orioles fell to 37-16 at home after dropping successive games at Camden Yards for the first time since May 30-31.Early in the game, Baltimore missed two opportunities to jump on top.After the Orioles loaded the bases with one out in the fourth, Gray retired major league home run leader Mark Trumbo on a popup before Jonathan Schoop hit a fly ball to center.Baltimore also wasted a leadoff double by Matt Wieters in the fifth.STREAK BREAKEROrioles slugger Chris Davis snapped an 0-for-24 skid with a bunt down the third-base line against the shift. He also walked and struck out twice.Its there to him, Showalter said of the bunt. We talked to him about it. Its one thing to do it. Its another thing to execute it. Its not easy when a guys throwing 96, 97, to step up there and bunt a ball over there.TRAINERS ROOMOrioles: Hyun Soo Kim was back in the lineup for the second consecutive game after being activated from the DL on Tuesday. Kim started in the left field and has not shown any lingering effects from a strained right hamstring.UP NEXTOrioles: RHP Ubaldo Jimenez (5-9, 7.38), who returned from paternity leave Tuesday, will start Thursdays makeup game from a May 9 postponement in Minnesota. While Jimenez has struggled this season, he is 5-3 with a 2.55 ERA in 10 career games (nine starts) against the Twins. Dallas Cowboys Connor Williams Jersey .

Dallas Cowboys Dorance Armstrong Jersey . LOUIS -- St. NEW YORK -- From his tiny booth near the top of Arthur Ashe Stadium, David Law paints pictures for the ear.Thwacks of the balls, squeaks of the shoes, roars of the crowd, grunts and sometimes curses, from the players, are just the backdrop. Law, a BBC play-by-play announcer, layers in a flourish of rapid-fire descriptions of U.S. Open action that are aimed solely for the theater of the mind.Forehand cross-court from Djokovic, hes pushing Nadal back, back. ... Hes pummeling, but he just cant put Nadal away. Nadal slices a backhand once again, he gets to every one of these balls, its just extraordinary retrieving from the Spaniard, Law says in one of his most famous calls , of a 54-stroke rally from the 2013 final.Massive forehand by Nadal and again Djokovic reaches the ball. ... Can the Serbian player finally find a chink of light in this armor of Nadal? ... Midcourt forehand from Nadal, and still Djokovic reaches it and into the net goes Nadaaal!!Such play-by-play for an audio-only audience is among the rarest of niches in sports media. Nearly 400 media organizations from around the world are covering this years U.S. Open, but only two -- the BBC and the U.S. Tennis Associations U.S. Open Radio -- call matches exclusively for the ear.Television long ago overtook radio as sports fans preferred medium. Theres also the lightning-fast pace of tennis that makes it tough to call on the radio.But to the hardy few who embrace tennis play by play, its an art form that conveys the drama and tension of the sport in a way television -- with its commentary mostly between points -- cant.On the telly, youre just in the way. They dont need you. They can see it for themselves on the screen, says Law, who is covering his 14th straight U.S. Open for the BBC. On the radio, people are much more appreciative of what you are doing because youre doing them a favor. They cant see it.For Law, a veteran tennis journalist and podcaster , the goal is to engage a mass audience and not be too tennisy. We want people to experience it like they are there, but also have fun.BBC, which has called all of Andy Murrays appearances and other top matches for the two weeks at Flushing Meadows, has a rich tradition of covering tennis, broadcasting live from Wimbledon since 1937 and at the U.S. Open for decades. Among its most famous calls was when Max Robertson hailed the 1977 Wimbledon victory by Britains own Virgina Wade with the words, Virginia will take tea with the Queen!Literal, shot-by-shot descriptions have been replaced over the years by a more conversational style. Tweeted comments from listeners are often read between points. Color commentator, former top 50 player Jeff Tarango, offers light banter. And Law punctuates long rallies with lightning-fast asides to reflect the broader flow. Wozniackis eyes are lasering in on the ball ... Sevastova will have to worry abbout her own nerves here as much as anything else.dddddddddddd Can she cope with it? ... Sevastova has a nice bit of variety to her game. She wont worry too much about keeping pace with Wozniacki.Theres a similar patter in the booth next door, where U.S. Open Radio announcers Brian Clark and Marc Ernay go wire-to-wire for the two-week run of the tournament, describing the action from Ashe and remotely from other courts. The other Grand Slam tournaments have their own such services, and they all take on the flavor of their home countries.U.S. Open Radio, which is also fed live to SiriusXM satellite radio, offers a straightforward call. Clark and Ernay bounce their descriptions in polished sportscaster voices back and forth off a rotating cast of expert analysts, including former tour players Jimmy Arias, Jill Craybas, Elise Burgin, Kathy Rinaldi and the aforementioned Wade.Petra Kvitova serving first from the near baseline at Ashe into the looping forehand of Angelique Kerber, then cross-court forehand for both left-handed players and Kvitova flies hers long for the first point of this match, Clark intones in a typical call. And then Burgin chimes in, Any rally over four or five shots absolutely favors Kerber. And so it goes in broadcast sessions that can go on for up to six hours.U.S. Open Radio has only been on for the full tournament since 2004, and American tennis for the ear, in general, lacks any real tradition. Brian Beglane, the USTA official who runs U.S. Radio, says that unlike in Britains publicly funded radio system, there is no substantial commercial support in the U.S. for play-by-play audio tennis beyond a tournament-only smartphone app.Most of sports radio is built around a team, but tennis is a bunch of individual stars, Beglane says. You cant build a radio franchise around it as well as you can for the Mets or the Yankees, a team.BBC gets about 5.8 million listeners a week on the main channel on which it broadcasts tennis, BBC 5 Live, but how that translates to a particular match is unclear. The USTA says U.S. Open Radio got 200,000 plays through the first week of the tournament.Law is convinced, however, that the true BBC ratings are in the millions during a Murray match that airs in prime time in Britain. That was the case this week when Kei Nishikori defeated Murray, who in recent months had won Wimbledon and the Olympic gold medal.But more meaningful to Law than calling the big matches are the comments from listeners, particularly those who cant enjoy tennis any other way. Read one recent tweet: As a blind listener, your commentary really gives me an understanding of the tennis these guys are playing.Says Law: Its a privilege to be their eyes and their senses. It means the world to me. Wholesale Jerseys 2020 Cheap NFL Jerseys Throwback Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Hoodies Wholesale Black NFL Jerseys Discount Jerseys ' ' '
