Kevin Gausman limited the Nationals to two runs over six innings in a no-decision Thursday.
Gausman largely matched Nationals ace Max Scherzer pitch for pitch, and he actually led the Cy Young Award winner until yielding a tying run in the sixth inning. It left both without a say in the decision, keeping Gausman's record at 3-6 while lowering his ERA to 4.38 through 15 starts. He's still winless since May 11, a fact he'll look to change Tuesday against a tough Mariners squad. Jun 21 - 10:00 PM

Kevin Gausman pitched well in a losing effort against the Marlins on Friday, surrendering just two runs on five hits over 5 2/3 innings.

Gausman punched out seven on the night while walking three. He allowed an RBI single to Brian Anderson in the fifth inning and an RBI triple to Lewis Brinson in the sixth, but that was the extent of the damage. Unfortunately for him, that was the entirety of the offense in the game for either team. The inconsistent right-hander will look to further improve upon his 4.40 ERA and 1.40 WHIP when he takes on the Nationals in Washington on Wednesday.
Jun 15 - 9:56 PM

Kevin Gausman surrendered three runs in 6 2/3 innings and did not factor into the decision against the Blue Jays on Saturday.

He struck out six batters without issuing a walk and allowed nine base hits, including a solo home run by Randal Grichuk. Gausman has good strikeout and walk rates but has been burned by the longball this year. His record holds at 3-5 with a 4.58 ERA after 13 starts. He has amassed 74 strikeouts, 17 walks and 14 home runs allowed in 76 2/3 innings.
Jun 9 - 4:54 PM

Kevin Gausman allowed six runs (five earned) on nine hits over 5 1/3 innings in Saturday's loss to the Yankees.

Something of an all-over-the-map showing for Gausman, who struck out nine without walking a batter while simultaneously being hit quite hard. The bulk of the damage came on a pair of two-run home runs, with Miguel Andujar and Giancarlo Stanton smacking dingers off him with a runner aboard in the second and third innings, respectively. Two more runs scored off Gausman in the sixth inning, aided by some incredibly sloppy play from the O's in the field. After tossing 6 1/3 scoreless innings with 10 strikeouts versus the White Sox on May 22, the Rays and Yankees have combined to tattoo him for 12 earned runs in his last two outings. The sudden rough patch has pushed his ERA from 3.48 to 4.63. Gausman will try to get back on track in a road date with the Blue Jays next time he toes the rubber.
Jun 2 - 9:26 PM

Kevin Gausman was lit up for six hits and seven runs in 2 2/3 innings Sunday in the Orioles’ loss to Tampa Bay.

The right-hander registered two walks and a single strikeout while throwing 43 of his 74 pitches for strikes. Gausman labored through a disastrous third inning, allowing five hits, six runs and two free passes in the frame. He also hit a batter while yielding a two-run double to Brad Miller, who had homered off him earlier. Gausman will take a three-start winless streak into his next outing Friday versus the Yankees. He yielded two runs over five innings in a no-decision against the Bombers earlier this year.
May 27 - 7:02 PM

Kevin Gausman delivered a dominant performance in a no-decision against the White Sox on Tuesday, matching his career high with 10 strikeouts over 6 1/3 scoreless innings.

The 27-year-old hurler scattered nine hits and a walk, throwing 76 of his 106 pitches for strikes in the ballgame. The White Sox had at least one hitter reach against him in every inning except the fourth, but Gausman was able to make key pitches when he needed to the most. He has proven to be a useful mixed league commodity, registering a 3.48 ERA, 1.31 WHIP and 58/15 K/BB ratio over his 62 innings. He'll look to carry over the momentum from this terrific outing when he takes on the Rays in Tampa Bay on Sunday.
May 22 - 11:37 PM

Kevin Gausman allowed eight hits and six runs over 4 2/3 innings in a loss to the Red Sox on Thursday.

Gausman gave up a two-run homer to J.D. Martinez in the first inning and blanked the Sox for the next three before things went south in the fifth. The poor start snapped a stretch of seven straight starts allowing three or fewer runs, and it was his worst outing since his season debut on April 1. The blip on the radar has his ERA at 3.88 with a 1.28 WHIP, and the 27-year-old will look to get back on track Tuesday against the White Sox.
May 18 - 12:24 AM

Kevin Gausman will make his next start on Thursday in Boston.

Gausman has averaged nearly 110 pitches over his last four starts, so the Orioles will give him a bit of a breather. He'll be pitching on five days' rest against the Red Sox. The Orioles will have to promote someone to start Wednesday.
May 13 - 11:52 AM

Kevin Gausman picked up his third victory of the season on Friday, limiting the Rays to two runs on 11 hits over 7 1/3 innings.

The right-hander punched out six and didn't walk a batter in the ballgame. He allowed an RBI single to C.J. Cron in the third inning, then left a runner on when he departed in the eighth who eventually came around to score. Gausman has pitched very well this season, compiling a 3.18 ERA, 1.20 WHIP and 42/12 K/BB ratio across 51 innings. He'll look to keep it going when he does battle against the Phillies on Wednesday.
May 11 - 10:12 PM

Kevin Gausman allowed just two hits and two walks with six strikeouts over nine scoreless innings in a no-decision Saturday at Oakland.

Gausman was impressive, throwing 66 of his 113 pitches for strikes while lowering his ERA from 4.15 to 3.30 with his fourth quality start over his past five appearances. He is the first O's pitcher to toss nine scoreless innings and not get the win since Zach Britton on May 12, 2011. Baltimore's pitching has been mostly woeful this season, but Gausman is certainly pulling his weight. He'll look to keep the momentum going on Friday against Jacob Faria and the Rays.
May 6 - 2:22 AM

Kevin Gausman gave up just one run in 5 2/3 innings on Sunday in a victory over the Tigers.

Gausman gave up five hits and three walks, but he was able to fan four and made the pitches when he needed to, keeping Detroit to just the one run. The right-hander now sports a 4.15 ERA with 30 strikeouts in his 34 2/3 innings. He's back on the mound on Saturday against the Athletics.
Apr 29 - 4:31 PM

Kevin Gausman allowed two earned runs over eight innings Monday in a tough-luck loss to the Indians.

Gausman pitched well, yielding just four hits and one walk while striking out seven, but the Orioles' hitters couldn't solve opposing starter Carlos Carrasco. Gausman now stands 1-2 on the year with a 4.66 ERA, 1.31 WHIP, and 26/7 K/BB ratio in 29 innings. He'll take on the Tigers next time out.
Apr 23 - 9:35 PM

Kevin Gausman gave up nine hits and two runs over six innings Thursday in the Orioles’ loss to the Tigers.

He registered four strikeouts and didn’t walk anyone over his 97 pitches. Gausman was hit hard in this one though he kept the damage to a minimum by allowing just two runs, both on solo shots by Jeimer Candelario and Miguel Cabrera. That’s been a problem for the right-hander, who has now served up six homers in only four starts this season. Gausman will look to get back on track Monday against the Indians.
Apr 18 - 5:09 PM

Kevin Gausman allowed three runs in six innings and earned a win over the Blue Jays on Wednesday.

He notched seven strikeouts, walked three batters and surrendered six base hits, including a solo home run by Aledmys Diaz. Gausman wasn't on top of his game -- it took him 106 pitches to complete six frames -- but he earned a quality start and took home the victory. He now owns a 1-1 record with a 6.60 ERA after three starts. He has fanned 15 batters in 15 innings of work.
Apr 11 - 11:03 PM

Kevin Gausman allowed two runs over five-plus innings in a no-decision against the Yankees on Friday.

It looked like Gausman was in some serious trouble after the first three batters reached in the first inning, but he managed to escape with just one run scoring. The Yankees got to him for another run in the third via an RBI single from Aaron Judge, but otherwise he hung in there in a tough matchup. Gausman allowed five hits and two walks on the night while striking out five and hitting a batter. All in all, it was nice to see after he was hit hard in his season debut against the Twins. He’ll try to keep it going when he faces the Blue Jays at home next week.
