Kevin Gausman hadn't pitched above AA until May 23rd—when he was rocked in his first MLB outing. Last night, however, the Red Sox treated him like he was Cy Young. Boston could only punch through two runs on six hits over Gausman's 5 1/3-inning stint. After tying the game at 4-4 in the seventh, the Carmine Hose remained punchless until the O's ended it all in the 14th, beating Boston, 5-4. David Ortiz and Mike Carp homered in the losing cause—which moved Baltimore into second place—2 1/2 games out.
