Mixed results for Gausman, Jurrjens down on the farm

Orioles right-hander Chris Tillman had a rough go of it at Camden Yards on Saturday night, not making it out of the fourth inning. But down on the farm, the Orioles got mixed results from a pair of noteworthy starters.

Kevin Gausman, the team’s first-round pick in 2012, allowed eight hits and six runs, four of them earned, in his first start of the season for Double-A Bowie. He struck out eight batters and walked none in four innings.

He allowed two runs in each of the second, third and fourth innings. Bowie trails Harrisburg, 6-1, in the sixth.

Gausman had a 3.94 ERA in 16 innings in seven games this spring.

Meanwhile, Jair Jurrjens made his first start of the season at Triple-A Norfolk. He pitched six shutout innings, allowing one hit and striking out seven. That game is in a 0-0 tie in the ninth inning as I write this.

Jurrjens posted a 4.91 ERA in 14.2 innings in six games this spring.
