That puts us on a pretty good pace, Molitor said with a laugh.
Orioles starter Kevin Gausman (0-1) allowed three home runs and lasted only four innings. The right-hander has gotten off to a slow start in each of the past two seasons, and this performance did nothing to dispel the notion that this year will be no different.
I feel good. Everything feels great, Gausman insisted. Who knows, maybe it was just a little cold today, (or I) didn’t throw enough out in the `pen. I’m not too worried about it.
Gausman is 1-4 with a 7.01 ERA in his season debuts…. Signed as a free agent in February, Logan Morrison is 0 for 11 with three strikeouts for Minnesota. He had 38 homers and 85 RBI with Tampa Bay last year…. Max Kepler had hit in all nine career games against Baltimore before going 0 for 3 with a walk.
Bundy is 0-1 with a 13.50 ERA over two career appearances (one start) against the Astros. He did not factor in the decision in his lone start against Houston last season despite allowing seven runs on eight hits (including two homers) and three walks with four strikeouts over 5 1/3 Jason Garrison Authentic Jersey innings. The Orioles recorded a 9-7 win at Houston on July 23.
Right-hander Mike Wright Jr., made what might amount to a spot start on Tuesday. Baltimore is anticipating the return of right-hander Alex Cobb perhaps as early as next week. Cobb, a free-agent signee during the offseason, is scheduled to pitch a five-inning simulated game Wednesday, with a final decision on his status beyond that likely to come this weekend.
