Dylan Bundy had a great night, Trey Mancini isn’t that into Star Wars, and more in today’s droppings!

Happy Sunday, Camden Chatters! It’s a dreary Cinco de Mayo in the Baltimore area, but you can shake off the blahs with a margarita or two for lunch. I won’t tell!

The Orioles have got to be feeling pretty good at the moment as they came off of a solid 3-0 win against the first-place Rays last night. The story of the game was Dylan Bundy, who pitched into the eighth inning and picked up his first win of the year. You can read all of the details and vote for Bundy in the MBP poll in Alex Church’s recap.

Today the Birds will try to get a series win with John Means on the mound. Game time is 1:05, you can join us in the game thread if you’d like to discuss the game with some internet friends.

I love reading good things about out guys! Bundy’s ERA dropped over a run with the 7.1 inning gem.

Trey Mancini might be headlining Star Wars night, but the force is not with him - Baltimore Sun
This is the first of two links I have of stories about Trey Mancini written by Peter Schmuck. Is that weird? Anyway, in this story Trey is asked about Star Wars and says that he’s really more of a Harry Potter fan. This begs the question, why not a Harry Potter night at Camden Yards?

Remember Nate Karns? He's still injured. Now he’s getting a second opinion after throwing a bit at Norfolk.

Trey Mancini wants to be an Oriole for life, but knows he might not even be one for rest of season | hastingstribune.com
I like Trey a lot and he says the right things here. When is the last time a player said of his current team, "I can't wait to leave?"

Is today your birthday? Happy birthday! You have just one Orioles birthday buddy, and if you have heard of him I’ll give you a cookie. Chuck Locke was a pitcher on the 1955 Orioles. He appeared in just two games in relief, totaling three innings pitched. He didn’t give up a run! Unfortunately for Chuck, those were his only two appearances in the MLB. He passed away in 2015 at the age of 82.
