Orioles officially promote Gausman to start

BALTIMORE -- The Orioles made two expected moves before Saturday's game, recalling right-hander Kevin Gausman from Triple-A Norfolk and optioning left-hander Tim Berry back to Double-A Bowie.

Gausman started Saturday's game, a move the Orioles made due to the injury to Miguel Gonzalez that landed the right-hander on the disabled list on Friday. In 10 starts with Norfolk this season, Gausman has a 2.98 ERA. He was the team's top pick in the 2012 First-Year Player Draft.

Berry wound up being with the club for just one day. He has a 3-3 record with a 4.12 ERA in 11 starts for Bowie.

He didn't get into Friday's game, but certainly enjoyed being with the team, even if it was just for one day. Berry scrambled to get to Baltimore from Maine in time for Friday's game and watched from the bullpen.

"It was just unbelievable," Berry said before being sent out Saturday. "I was trying to stay ready at all times. I was just enjoying the game from the 'pen and it was a really cool experience."
