As a 19-year old in 1964, Bunker won his first six starts of the season and pitched a one-hit shutout in another game. He became the ace of a staff that also consisted of Milt Pappas and Robin Roberts. He finished the season 19-5 and won The Sporting News American League Rookie pitcher of the Year as Baltimore fell short of the American League pennant, finishing in third place, two games behind the New York Yankees and one behind the second-place Chicago White Sox. However, he never duplicated his rookie season; a sore arm during the 1965 season reduced him to a part-time starter afterwards. He posted a 10-8 record that year and a 10-6 record the following year, as the Orioles won the World Series. In Game 3 of that Series, which the Orioles swept over the Los Angeles Dodgers, Bunker pitched a six-hit, 1-0 shutout, which was sandwiched in between shutouts by Jim Palmer and Dave McNally as the Orioles set a Series record by not allowing a run for 33 1/3 consecutive scoreless innings. In 1968 the Kansas City Royals selected him in the expansion draft, and he was their winningest pitcher in the team’s first year with a 12-11 record. Once again, however, the arm troubles that limited him to a part-time starter shortened his career; he pitched his final major league game at just 26 years of age.
