BALTIMORE---Dylan Bundy had a dreamlike five innings. Everything was working.
Bundy, in just his third major league start, had the Oriole Park fans excited. He was retiring Colorado Rockies, seemingly at will, and through five, he had a perfect inning.
No one came close to reaching base.
In the sixth, the dream ended as the Colorado Rockies hit two home runs and instead of something wonderful, Bundy had a painful defeat.
The Rockies’ 3-1 win before 20,234 on Wednesday night, was just the second time this season the Orioles have lost a series.
While Bundy was perfect for five innings, the Orioles (58-42) could do little against Jon Gray (7-4).
Bundy (3-3) retired the first 16 Rockies (49-52) before he walked Mark Reynolds. Nick Hundley ended the no-hitter and shutout with a home run to left, his fifth.
After DJ LeMahieu grounded back to Bundy, David Dahl hit his first major league home run, and Colorado led 3-0.

Bundy was out of the game after 5 2/3 innings. He struck out a career-high eight batters, including seven of the first 12.
Chris Davis had the first hit off Gray, and his first hit after 24 hitless at-bats when he dropped a bunt down against the shift to start the second.
Matt Wieters thought he had given the Orioles a 1-0 lead when he hit a long drive to right. It was ruled foul, and the call withstood a crew chief challenge.
In the fourth, Gray hit Adam Jones with a pitch. Jones took third on Hyun Soo Kim’s single, and stayed there on Manny Machado’s short fly to left. Davis walked to load the bases.
The bases stayed loaded as Mark Trumbo popped out to second nbd Jonathan Schoop flied to center.
Wieters doubled to start the fifth, but he stayed there.
Machado hit his 21st home run with one out in the sixth for the Orioles’ only run.
Wieters tried for second on his seventh inning single, but after a replay challenge, was ruled out at second.
Gray, who gave up one run on five hits in seven innings was replaced by Adam Ottavino for the eighth.
Jones led off with a single. Kim bounced into what was called a double play, but Buck Showalter challenged the call. Kim was ruled safe, but Jones was called out. Machado struck out, and Boone Logan struck out Davis, who is now 1-for-27.
Carlos Estevez got Trumbo to fly out to left, stretching his hitless streak to 17 at-bats. He quickly retired Schoop and Wieters for his 10th save.
