Quotes from the visitor’s clubhouse … Orioles manager Buck Showalter
On how important it was for Gausman to get out of the first inning with runners on 2nd and 3rd with no outs: “I told him when I took him out of the game, that’s the ballgame, you won the game in the bottom of the first. You know, a lot happened between then and the end, but that was huge. He got back off the mound to collect himself and try to minimize the damage and get us back in the dugout.”
On if Gausman’s start was an example of a “Professional Start” he had talked about: “Yeah, and Adam made a big play throwing a guy out at second believe it or not because there was some momentum working in that inning, and they’ve got such a lethal lineup you know just how quickly leads can evaporate, especially on the road.”
