Wade Miley struck out 11 and fell an out shy of a complete game Saturday, allowing a lone run in the Orioles' 6-1 win over the Diamondbacks.

Miley gave up seven hits without allowing a walk, and the 11 strikeouts were a season high. An RBI double by Brandon Drury with two outs in the ninth ended Miley's night just shy of the complete game, but it was still an impressive turn for the 29-year-old. Miley is 9-13 with a 5.40 ERA in 29 starts overall, and he'll make his final start of the year Friday against the Yankees.

Trey Mancini hit his third home run in four games in Saturday's win over the Diamondbacks.

Mancini took D'backs starter Robbie Ray deep for a solo shot in the fourth inning. The 24-year-old has four hits in 11 at-bats since being brought up by the Orioles, but three of those have left the yard. He could be setting himself up to enter next spring as the favorite for the Orioles' designated hitter job with his hot finish.

Chris Davis went 2-for-4 with two RBI in a win over the Diamondbacks on Saturday.

The D'backs intentionally walked Adam Jones to get to Davis with the bases loaded in the fourth inning, and he made them pay by coming through with a two-run single. The multi-hit game was his first since September 6. Davis is hitting just .220/.331/.469 but has 38 homers, 84 RBI and 95 runs scored overall.

Mark Trumbo went 2-for-3 with his 45th home run of the year in Saturday's win over the Diamondbacks.

The homer was Trumbo's second in as many days. Every new dinger adds to Trumbo's already impressive year, as he's got a career-high 45 homers with 104 RBI and 89 runs scored. The free agent-to-be is going to get paid in a big way this winter.

Kevin Gausman (intercostal) felt good during Saturday's bullpen session and will start Tuesday against the Blue Jays.

Gausman felt some oblique soreness after his last start but said it was just a cramp. He had been scheduled to start Sunday against the Diamondbacks but Dylan Bundy will get the nod instead with Gausman slotting in after the team's off day on Monday. Despite an 8-11 record, Gausman leads the Orioles in ERA (3.57) and strikeouts (166) this season.

Jayson Aquino has been cleared to pitch.

He'll be available out of the bullpen Sunday against the Diamondbacks. Aquino has spent the last few weeks at the team's spring training facility in Florida in an effort to limit his innings. The left-hander hasn't allowed a run in three relief appearances for the O's this year.

Mark Trumbo blasted a walk-off solo homer in the 12th inning on Friday, delivering the Orioles a much-needed 3-2 victory over the Diamondbacks.

With the victory, the O's kept pace in the battle for the second wild card, sitting half of a game behind the Tigers. In typical Orioles fashion, all of their scoring came via the long ball. Pedro Alvarez got the club on the board with a solo shot in the eighth, Matt Wieters tied it with a blast in the ninth and Trumbo with the game-winner in the 12th. He finished the night 2-for-5 and is now slashing .247/.309/.521 with 44 homers and 103 RBI on the year.

Yovani Gallardo pitched well in a no-decision against the Diamondbacks on Friday, allowing two runs on six hits over his six innings.

The veteran right-hander punched out five while issuing two free passes. The Diamondbacks struck for single runs in the first and second innings, then Gallardo settled in and kept them off the scoreboard the remainder of his night. A major disappointment for most of the season, he'll carry a 5.63 ERA and 1.62 WHIP into his regular season finale against the Yankees in New York on Friday.

Orioles manager Buck Showalter said Friday that Kevin Gausman (intercostal) is feeling better and is expected to be ready to start Tuesday or Wednesday.

Gausman had to be pushed back from Sunday with a minor intercostal issue, but the O's expect him to be fine. If the right-hander is ready to take the ball on Tuesday, he would have time to get in two starts before the end of the regular season.
Sep 23 - 4:38 PM

Trey Mancini went 2-for-3 with a double and a three-run home run in Thursday's loss to the Red Sox.

Mancini was the only Orioles hitter with an answer for David Price and company, collecting two of the team's six hits and notching the only two Orioles extra-base hits in the game. The three-run homer in the third inning came off David Price. It was the 24-year-old's second homer in three games since being promoted on September 18 after he hit 20 homers between Double-A and Triple-A this year.
Sep 23 - 12:13 AM

Chris Tillman lasted just 1 2/3 innings against the Red Sox, allowing three runs on five hits in a no-decision.

Tillman clearly didn't have it -- he also walked three during his time -- and Orioles manager Buck Showalter didn't hesitate to remove the starter in hopes of winning an important game for the Wild Card-hopeful Orioles. The clunker was rare for Tillman, who has been largely good in going 16-6 with a 3.84 ERA through 29 starts. The O's will need the 28-year-old to bounce back in a big way when they face off against another Wild Card team, the Blue Jays, next week.
Sep 23 - 12:05 AM

Dylan Bundy will start for the Orioles on Sunday in place of Kevin Gausman.

Gausman is having his next start pushed back due to a minor intercostal strain. The O's had planned to give Bundy a little bit of extra rest and have him pitch on Tuesday or Wednesday, but he'll take the ball on Sunday against the Diamondbacks instead.
Sep 22 - 6:55 PM

Kevin Gausman will not start on Sunday against the Diamondbacks due to soreness in his intercostal area.

Orioles manager Buck Showalter thinks the ailment could have been caused by Gausman being a bit dehydrated. He's hopeful that the injury is minor and that the right-hander will be ready to pitch on Tuesday or Wednesday in Toronto. "He’s got a little something bothering him that we think should manage hopefully by Tuesday or Wednesday," Showalter said. "We hope he’s our starting pitcher Tuesday or Wednesday, that’s what we’re hoping for. It won’t be Sunday. We have an off-day there to play with, see how things manage the next few days." Dylan Bundy will be moved up to start Sunday.
Sep 22 - 6:05 PM

Ubaldo Jimenez was charged with two unearned runs and a loss after working five-plus innings Wednesday against the Red Sox.

Jimenez shut the Red Sox out for five innings before walking David Ortiz and giving up a single to Mookie Betts to start the sixth. The Orioles lifted him and what followed was a five-run inning, with all of the runs termed unearned following a Chris Davis error. Jimenez had pitched a total of 23 innings in his previous three starts this month, but the Red Sox made him throw 105 pitches to get his 15 outs. The Orioles still won't find any fault with his performance.
Sep 22 - 12:08 AM

Steve Pearce underwent successful surgery to repair flexor tendons in his right forearm on Wednesday.

Pearce is done for the 2016 season and will enter free agency this fall with some major question marks. There is a recovery timetable of about 4-6 months attached with the procedure he just underwent. The veteran first baseman and corner outfielder slashed .288/.374/.492 with 13 homers and 35 RBI over 265 at-bats this season between the Rays and Orioles.
