Hitter to watch: D.J. Stewart (Orioles' No. 18), Bowie at Richmond (4:05 p.m. ET on MiLB.TV)

Stewart powered Double-A Bowie to an 11-2 win over Richmond on Saturday, going 2-for-5 with a pair of home runs and three RBIs. The multi-homer performance was the 23-year-old outfielder's second this season and pushed his total to 21 home runs on the year. Having collected multiple hits in four of his past five games, Stewart carries a .281/.379/.487 line with him into Sunday's doubleheader.

Pitcher to watch: Dane Dunning (White Sox No. 10), Winston-Salem at Salem (1:05 p.m. ET on MiLB.TV)

Dunning took the loss in his last start for Class A Advanced Winston-Salem despite tossing six innings of two-run, two-hit ball with 10 strikeouts. It was the fourth double-digit strikeout effort this season for the 22-year-old righty, who owns a 3.09 ERA with 159 strikeouts in 137 innings (10.5 K/9) across two levels.
