Orioles' David Lough hits walk-off homer in 10th inning on Saturday


by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(4/25/2015) David Lough's first home run of the season was a 10th-inning walk-off winner that lifted the Orioles over the Red Sox on Saturday.

Lough entered the game in the eighth inning as a pinch runner and then came around to bat in the 10th to hit the game winner.

"I just wanted to put together a good at-bat," he said to MASN Sports. "He likes to throw that splitter a lot, so just wanted to have a good at-bat, maybe draw a walk or whatever. Then I got to 3-2 and he ended up throwing me one over the plate where I got a good piece of wood on it.

"It's huge. I'm a team-first guy and have always been that way. Good to get the win and see the smile on the guys' faces. Hopefully that happens on a regular basis from here on out and we can keep rolling."

Flurry of strikeouts prompts Ausmus to bench Tigers OF Gose


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/25/2015) A spate of strikeouts motivated Brad Ausmus to bench Tigers leadoff hitter Anthony Gose against Cleveland on Saturday.

Gose hadn't stopped hitting - he managed six hits in his last 22 at-bats and owns a .333/.348/.511 slash line on the year with eight runs scored. But he has tallied just twice in the last seven games and has been stirring up plenty of wind. He fanned 10 times in 17 at-bats over the last four games.

"He's just in a little bit of a funk right now," Ausmus told MLB.com. "He's not swinging like was a week ago. It doesn't hurt to give him a day to regroup and work on some things in the cage."
