Monday Bird Droppings: Gausman comes alive!

The Orioles didn't get swept by the Rays and now they head to Milwaukee. In today's links, what the O's need in the second half, more Dan Duquette dumpster diving, and a lefty lines up for a spot start against the O's.

The Orioles avoided a sweep at the hand of the Rays yesterday with the type of outing from Kevin Gausman that I think we all hoped we'd be seeing more often this season. Gausman has now made three straight promising starts and brought his ERA to its lowest mark since April.

The Orioles close out the first half with a mid-western road trip that will take them to Milwaukee and Minneapolis.

The key for the rest of the year happened Sunday - big days from Gausman, Machado - Schoop having a great season is...great. Gausman and Manny Machado picking things up would help the O's immensely.
