Dylan Bundy’s making his first career start against the Dodgers and his second appearance. He tossed 2 1/3 scoreless innings with seven strikeouts on July 6, 2016 in Los Angeles.
Hill is making his 11th start this season. He’s posted a 2.55 ERA and 1.113 WHIP and has struck out 61 batters in 53 innings.
Hill hasn’t pitched for the Dodgers since June 19 due to a left forearm flexor strain. He’s made 12 career appearances against the Orioles and allowed only two runs with 21 strikeouts in 20 2/3 innings.
The current Orioles are 0-for-16 with six strikeouts against Hill, who pitched for the Orioles in 2009.

Chris Davis is the Orioles’ nominee for the Roberto Clemente Award, the third year in a row that he’s been honored.
Prior to the Sept. 18 game at Camden Yards, executive vice president/general manager Mike Elias will present Davis with the award and present a ceremonial check for $7,500 to the LUNGevity Foundation.
Davis earned the Orioles’ 2019 distinction based again on his family’s ongoing work with many charities in and around the Baltimore community, including the LUNGevity Foundation, the University of Maryland Children’s Hospital, Casey Cares Foundation, Helping Up Mission, Compassion International, Maryland Food Bank, International Justice Mission, Water Missions International and Feed My Starving Children.
Here are the starters for the series in Detroit:
