The O's are trying to rebound from a heartbreaker. Kevin Gausman will make his 2014 Major League debut against Detroit's former Cy Young award winner, Justin Verlander.

So, last night kinda sucked. But let's look at the bright side, and roll that in to today. Both starting pitchers have looked very good against this Detroit lineup. With the way the O's bats have looked, they will need a similar performance from the young starter Kevin Gausman today. He has had injury woes this season and is working on just three days rest. What could go wrong? Should be quite the spec-tacle. Ya know, because Gausman wears glasses now.
