Tidbits

• Right-hander Kevin Gausman, the Orioles' first-round pick in the 2012 First-Year Player Draft, made his Class A debut for the Frederick Keys Saturday night, throwing three innings and allowing four runs on four hits and a walk. Gausman, who also picked up a strikeout, threw 42 pitches.

• Orioles pitcher Chris Tillman was fined $750 by the league for hitting the Royals' Salvador Perez with an 89-mph fastball in the sixth inning of the Orioles' 7-3 loss on Aug. 11. Perez homered in the second inning of the game. Tillman -- who said the plunking was unintentional -- was notified of the fine Saturday.

• Right-hander Zach Petersime started for Triple-A Norfolk Saturday night, becoming the 25th different starting pitcher the Tides have used this season. It ties an International League record.

• After claiming 16 series wins in 2011, the Orioles claimed their 21st series win of 2012 on Wednesday. The last time the Orioles won 21 series in one year was 2004. They haven't won more than 21 series in a year since winning 23 in 1998.

• Jake Arrieta turned in his best outing in seven starts for Triple-A Norfolk, tossing 6 2/3 innings and allowing two earned runs -- on a two-run homer -- over the 98-pitch outing. The reports on Arrieta were that he looked the best he has since being demoted in early July, striking out eight and scattering three hits and a pair of walks. He retired 16 of the final 18 batters he faced.
