BALTIMORE (AP) - Kevin Gausman earned his first win as a starter while Adam Jones and David Lough each homered, leading the Baltimore Orioles over the Oakland Athletics 6-3 Saturday night.
Called up from Triple-A Norfolk earlier in the day, Gausman (1-1) set career highs by pitching seven innings and striking out six.
Gausman, the fourth overall pick in the 2012 draft, gave up one run and four hits and walked one. He had made six previous starts in the majors over two seasons.
Jones hit his ninth homer, a solo shot in the first. Lough, who entered the game batting just .184, hit his second homer.
Oakland lost for just the second time in eight games. Sonny Gray (6-2) allowed a season-high five runs on four hits and four walks in 5 1-3 innings.
