Lynchburg - Frederick Keys' 19-year-old Dylan Bundy is regarded as the top pitching prospect in all of minor league baseball.
And the fourth overall pick in last year's draft gave the Hillcats a healthy dose of that talent Wednesday night. Bundy struck out eight and allowed just two hits and one unearned run in six-and-two-thirds innings of work and the Keys beat the Hillcats 7-1.
A large group of kids from The Boys and Girls Club of Greater Lynchburg came out for the game. Hillcats General Manager Paul Sunwall presented Boys and Girls Club Director Mark Sheehan with a check for nearly six thousand dollars, money raised at the Hillcats' annual golf tournament. This game was tied at one in the fourth until Steve Bumbry chops one down the first base side, Aaron Northcraft fielded it but then threw it away at first, Jeremy Nowak scored all the way from first. Bumbry went all the way to third and scored on a sac fly.
The Keys tacked on four runs in the 8th to complete the 7-1 win. They go for the three-game road sweep Thursday night in Lynchburg.
