KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Even if the Orioles end up losing to the Kansas City Royals in the American League Championship Series this week, there's a sense that the experience itself will help the club going forward - especially for the younger players who didn't participate in the 2012 postseason. "It's huge, especially because I hope we are back here next year and the near future, and hopefully I am starting one of these games," rookie right-hander Kevin Gausman said. "Any time you have success in the postseason, it definitely helps, not only yourself but your confidence level and also says a lot about your career.

Over the weekend I received a whole lot of correspondence about the Orioles' decision to send right-hander Kevin Gausman to Triple-A Norfolk on Friday night despite the fact that he pitched well in his past three starts. I tried to explain that it was procedural and that he would be back Friday afternoon to start against the Tampa Bay Rays, be sent down Friday night and then likely will be up again to start the following week against the Texas Rangers. Some of you didn't care about the rationale; you were still ticked.

Baltimore Sun reporters, columnists and editors share their immediate reaction to Game 2 of the American League Division Series between the Orioles and the Detroit Tigers at Camden Yards. Eduardo A. Encina, reporter: What have they said? A hero every night. Delmon Young played the role today. He's been marvelous off the bench and as a pinch hitter, and Young's postseason experience showed with a game-winning three-run double in the eighth. On to Detroit. Dan Connolly, reporter: Well, the Orioles felt like they had a seceret weapon in pinch-hitter Delmon Young.

FORT MYERS, Fla. -- Orioles pitching prospect Kevin Gausman struggled early but settled in his second inning of work Thursday, striking out major leaguers Chris Parmelee and Trevor Plouffe on a pair of 96 mph fastballs in his second career spring appearance. Gausman, whose fastball was steadily from 93-96 mph and topped at 97, allowed three hits in his first inning of work in the fourth, including a pair of back-to-back, two-out singles to Joe Mauer and Josh Willingham. Mauer's single, which fell just in front of a diving Trayvon Robinson in left, plated Darin Mastroianni, who reached on a one-out double off Gausman.

The Orioles make their final road trip of the spring today -- and it is to Hammond Stadium in Fort Myers, Fla., to face the Minnesota Twins. This will be Kevin Gausman's last start for the Orioles this spring before heading to minor league camp. He'll be facing most of the Twins' regulars, but the most intriguing matchup will be Gausman versus another highly touted minor leaguer, Twins third baseman Miguel Sano. Sano, 19, is considered a Top 10 player on many prospect lists. The Orioles were close to signing the Dominican teenager when he agreed to a $3.15 million bonus with the Twins.

Count Orioles first-round draft pick Kevin Gausman among those devastated by the news that snack food company Hostess is closing its doors. Other than his promise as a future front-line, right-handed starter, Gausman -- the fourth overall pick in June's draft out of LSU -- is known for having a quirky set of superstitions. Among them is eating four powdered mini-doughnuts before innings when he pitches. His preferred mini-doughnut of choice is Hostess' powdered Donettes.

When Kevin Gausman made his major league debut last year with the Orioles, he was welcomed as the latest in a line of saviors to come to Baltimore from the farm system. Gausman's numbers weren't in line with that, though, and as he makes his 2014 debut Wednesday, there's nowhere near the fanfare we experienced last year. That doesn't much matter to Gausman, who will face a relentless Detroit Tigers lineup. Miguel Gonzalez, who is being held in reserve in case Chris Tillman or Bud Norris can't make their next start, will piggyback Gausman.

After right-hander Kevin Gausman allowed six hits and two runs in 5 1/3 innings Thursday night against the Boston Red Sox, he was optioned to Triple-A Norfolk. It had little to do with how he pitched. The Orioles needed another arm in the bullpen after Thursday's 13-inning, 5-4 win . They used six relievers - and three threw more than one inning. Gausman has options, and most of the relief corps doesn't (only Brian Matusz and Darren O'Day could be sent to the minors without passing through waivers)

National anthem: Soprano Chelsea Buyalos provided the second straight operatic anthem of the postseason. Ceremonial first pitch: Orioles vice president of baseball operations Brady Anderson, an American League Division Series hero in his playing career, threw the ceremonial first ball Friday. First pitch: Orioles left-hander Wei-Yin Chen threw a strike to Tigers second baseman Ian Kinsler at 12:08 p.m., one minute after the scheduled start time. It was 66 degrees and cloudy.

As he transitioned back into a relief role for the American League Division Series, Orioles right-hander Kevin Gausman said he was ready for whatever role manager Buck Showalter had in store for him. Gausman was called to make his postseason debut in Friday afternoon's ALDS Game 2 with a critical task: Halt a Detroit Tigers offensive onslaught. After left-hander Wei-Yin Chen allowed five runs in the fourth inning, the 23-year-old Gausman entered with a runner on second base and two outs, then struck out Ian Kinsler swinging on a 98 mph fastball..

When the Detroit Tigers last came to Baltimore in May, right fielder Torii Hunter left firmly ensconced as the chief villain in road grays. Miguel Cabrera, the two-time reigning American League MVP, took up that mantel during the ALDS. Cabrera, the reigning two-time American League Most Valuable Player, had a hand in nearly every play - good and bad - on either team's ledger Friday, as his Tigers fell 7-6 with another eighth-inning bullpen implosion. The 2012 Triple Crown winner, who homered in the eighth inning of Game 1 and took his time rounding the bases, opened the Tigers' attack with a two-out single in the first inning Friday.

The Orioles will only have two lefties in their bullpen for the American League Division Series that starts tonight at 5:37 p.m. against the Detroit Tigers, and Ubaldo Jimenez is a surprise addition to the roster. The Tigers don't have many left-handed bench options, so Orioles manager Buck Showalter apparently felt he'd rather have an extra right-hander that can provide some length in Jimenez. Infielder Jimmy Paredes made the cut. Outfielder/baserunning specialist Quintin Berry didn't.

Considering how well his starting rotation mates had been pitching going into the postseason, Orioles right-hander Kevin Gausman expected to be sent to the bullpen for the American League Division Series. He received word before the Orioles' ALDS workout at Camden Yards on Wednesday that he would indeed work in relief. Orioles manager Buck Showalter has said he would use four starters in the best-of-five series. “I'm excited about it and I kind of knew this was coming,” said Gausman, who was 7-7 with a 3.57 ERA in 20 starts with the Orioles, “so I kind have been trying get into the routine like I had last year coming out of the 'pen.

Bundy, 20, started, went two innings, allowed one hit, two walks, an unearned run and struck out one batter.

Orioles right-hander Jason Hammel let rookie Kevin Gausman sit for about a half inning after the 22-year-old's rough performance against the Washington Nationals on Tuesday night before approaching him. Hammel just wanted Gausman to know two things: 1. We've all been there. 2. You will be successful here. “I just asked him how he felt. He said he felt good. I just asked him, 'Did things kind of speed up on you a little bit?' That's what it kind of looked like from out vantage point,” Hammel said.

Orioles manager Buck Showalter met the media prior to the Orioles' American League Division Series workout and he revealed little about what his plans are for his roster. Yes, he's settled on a starter for Friday, but hasn't announced it yet. Yes, he knows pretty much which way he is leaning for his roster, but he wanted to talk to some of his players during the workout first. He said he's still kicking around 10 or 11 pitchers. He wouldn't go into specifics, but in that scenario you have to figure Jimmy Paredes or Quintin Berry has made it. And if he takes 10 pitchers, then both have likely made it (Alexi Casilla and Steve Clevenger are here for the workout, but they remain long shots)

NEW YORK - As the final week of the regular season begins, the Orioles' postseason pitching plan is becoming clearer. Orioles manager Buck Showalter said before Monday's series opener against the New York Yankees at Yankee Stadium that he plans to use four starters in the American League Division Series. Right-hander Chris Tillman is on turn to start with one extra day of rest in the Orioles' series opener against the Toronto Blue Jays at Rogers Centre on Friday, which also puts him in line to start Game 1 of the ALDS on Oct. 2, also on one extra day of rest.
