Brandon Hyde's gut play with Dylan Bundy trumped the numbers, gave glimpse of Orioles manager's style

Few games to this point have shed much light on how things might go for him when the Orioles elevate their ambition above where it is now. But Friday's 5-1 win over the Cleveland Indians illustrated a bit of his in-game feel as he rode starter Dylan Bundy past some in-game moments that have challenged him and the Orioles this year.
