Kevin Gausman worked seven innings of one-run ball in his final start of the season Sunday against the Rays.

But the Orioles' offense managed zero runs against Blake Snell and the Tampa Bay bullpen in the eventual 6-0 loss. Gausman struck out nine and did not issue a walk, though Curt Casali popped him for a go-ahead solo shot in the bottom of the fifth. Gausman, 26, finishes the 2017 season with an 11-12 record, 4.68 ERA, 1.49 WHIP, and 179/71 K/BB ratio in 34 starts covering 186 2/3 innings.

Kevin Gausman is expected to start on Sunday against the Rays.

Gausman would get the start in place of Jeremy Hellickson (back). The right-hander has posted an 11-11 record so far in 2017 with 170 strikeouts in 179 innings along with a 4.80 ERA.

Kevin Gausman was clobbered for six runs over four runs in Tuesday’s loss to the Pirates.

Well, he had to squeeze in another blowup start before the end of the season, right? The righty has been excellent in the second half, but even amidst that he’s mixed in some clunkers. Gausman gave up five hits and two walks on the night, with the big blow being a grand slam hit by Andrew McCutchen in the second inning. It’s unclear whether this is it for Gausman or if he’ll start Sunday in Tampa.

Kevin Gausman's next start will be Tuesday in Pittsburgh.

Gausman will get a little extra rest leading into his final outing of the season. The 26-year-old right-hander was brilliant on Tuesday versus the Red Sox, yielding just three hits and one walk over eight scoreless innings.

Kevin Gausman held the Red Sox to just three hits and a walk over eight scoreless innings but settled for a no-decision in Tuesday’s extra-innings loss.

Gausman punched out seven batters on the night, and the three hits he gave up were all singles. The right-hander has tossed 15 2/3 scoreless innings while permitting just seven hits over his last two outings versus the Red Sox. He’s been fantastic in four of his last five starts and now boasts a 3.09 second-half ERA. Gausman takes on the Rays on Sunday.

Kevin Gausman allowed one run in seven innings to earn a 2-1 victory over the Blue Jays on Wednesday.

He struck out six and walked just one in the quality start. He surrendered six hits including three doubles but kept the ball in the yard as the Orioles won the low-scoring affair. The only run he allowed came in on a Richard Urena double in the third inning. Gausman has been as good after the All Star break as he was bad before it. He has an 11-10 record with a 4.83 ERA and 1.56 WHIP in 31 starts on the season. He had a 5.85 ERA in the first half and owns a 3.43 mark in the second half.

Kevin Gausman is dealing with a blister issue on his right index finger but will make his scheduled start Wednesday in Toronto.

Gausman is unconcerned, saying he deals with blisters often and that his bullpen session Sunday went off without a hitch. It's good to hear that he's confident, but it's worth noting that the righty allowed five runs over just three innings in his last outing. His inconsistency and the blister problem makes him a risky fantasy proposition Wednesday.

Kevin Gausman lasted just three innings and gave up five runs Thursday in a loss to the Yankees.

Gausman had no command today; when he wasn't walking three batters, he was leaving fastballs right down the middle. He came into this one having thrown 13 2/3 scoreless innings in his previous two starts. The Orioles are hoping this one was an aberration. He's still allowed two runs or fewer in eight of his 11 starts since the All-Star break.

Kevin Gausman blanked the Blue Jays over six-plus innings on Friday.

Gausman was pulled at 115 pitches after walking the leadoff batter in the seventh. He gave up five hits — four singles and a double — while walking just one batter and striking out eight. While Gausman had to settle for the no-decision, he has thrown 14 2/3 scoreless innings over his last two starts to lower his ERA to 4.79 for the year. He hasn’t seen that territory since mid-April.

Kevin Gausman shut down the Red Sox on Saturday, hurling 7 2/3 scoreless innings in a 7-0 victory.

He notched five strikeouts against three walks and allowed just four knocks in the gem start against one of the best teams in the majors. Gausman had a very poor first half of the season but has turned things around in a major way since the All Star break. Overall he is 10-9 with a 4.98 ERA that has been dropping fast.

Kevin Gausman served up four homers and allowed five runs in four innings during Saturday's loss to the Angels.

Both Mike Trout and Luis Valbuena burned him twice. He tossed a gopherball in each inning he pitched. It's been an up-and-down season for the young hurler and there's definitely been a lot more good than bad lately. This is the first bad start he's made in a while and ends his 10 game stretch in which he went 6-1 with a 3.19 ERA. He is now 9-9 with a 5.25 ERA and woeful 1.63 WHIP overall, with most of that damage done before the All Star break. He's given up 26 taters in 27 starts. The fact he has punched out 135 batters in 144 innings shows his potential if he can find a way to keep the ball out of the bleachers.

Kevin Gausman held the Mariners to two runs and six hits over seven innings to win Monday.

This was a pretty easy one for Gausman, as the Orioles gave him seven runs in the first two innings and three more in the fifth. He's 6-1 with a 3.19 ERA and a 69/17 K/BB ratio over 59 1/3 innings in his last 10 starts.

Kevin Gausman allowed four runs on eight hits over 5 1/3 innings in Wednesday's loss to the Angels.

Gausman had been on a roll over his last four starts (two runs in 27 2/3 innings) but that was slowed just a little on Wednesday. The hard-throwing right-hander surrendered solo runs in the third and fourth innings before C.J. Cron finished off the scoring on his line via a two-run home run in the sixth inning. Despite his recent strong run of outings, Gausman still holds a 5.21 ERA and 1.63 WHIP for the season as a whole. A road showdown with the Mariners shows next on his schedule.

Kevin Gausman was outstanding in a tough-luck no-decision on Friday, racking up eight strikeouts over seven innings of one-run ball against the Tigers.

Gausman scattered just three hits and a walk on the night. He gave up a solo homer to Jim Adduci in the first inning then completely dominated the Tigers for the remainder of his night. Unfortunately, the O's bullpen was unable to protect his lead. He has been phenomenal over his last four starts, lowering his ERA from 6.39 to 5.15 in the process. He'll look to continue his newfound dominance when he takes on the Athletics in Oakland on Thursday.
