Quotes from Bundy’s Dominant Performance for Keys

Frederick, MDDylan Bundy rebounded from a June 5 start in which he didn’t make it out of the fourth inning.  The 19-year-old was in command of all his pitches and recorded his third Carolina League victory Saturday.

Bundy’s line: 5.0 IP, 2 H, 0 ER, 2 BB, 2 K, 60 pitches (36 strikes).

Dylan Bundy

On his performance

I had a little bit better command today, but I still walked two guys. For the most part I thought they were strikes, but I guess they were too low to be called strikes; the other walk was flat out frustration.”

On the difference between the last Frederick start in which he struggled to Saturday’s start

“The thing Blaine [Beatty] told me was to keep the ball low in the zone and not nit pick the corners.  I just tried to focus on keeping the ball down tonight. Most of my misses were pretty low.”

On only having two strikeouts

“I was working on my changeup a lot today as you guys could tell.  I was throwing it early in the count to get swings and misses. They also hit it on the ground.”

On All-Star experience

“It was fun.  I got pitch the sixth inning and it went pretty good.”

 

Aaron Baker

On Bundy

Dylan threw the ball really well. We played great defense behind him and we were able to score runs when we needed too.”

On two-run homerun in sixth inning

“I think the first pitch was a fastball and the next was a changeup.  I was able to keep my weight back and put the barrel on the bat. I was kind of surprised that it went out, but i’ll take anything I can get.”

Orlando Gomez

On Bundy

“He was better today. I saw he threw better changeups. He had a better command of his fastball. The more you pitch and you start gaining innings for yourself things will change a little bit. He made some pitches when he needed it.  he was very aggressive to the hitters.”

On only throwing 60 pitches in five innings

“Anytime you can throw 60 pitches in only five innings it’s great.  He made some adjustments. His changeups was one of the key pitches today and he threw it consistently for strikes.”

On being tempted to leave him in for more than five innings

“There is going to be a time where he throws 90 to 100 pitches in seven to eight innings. He is building himself and doing a really nice job.”
