The Baltimore Orioles and the Toronto Blue Jays will meet again to play a 3-game series at the Oriole Park at Camden Yards. The Orioles won their last series against the Pirates while the Blue Jays tied 2-2 in a 4-game series vs Twins.
The Orioles get here with a 56-52 record and have won 5 of their last 6 games. The team is averaging 4.23 runs per game. They're batting for .236 AVG, 453 runs scored in 854 hits and 109 home runs, ranking #20 in offense in the league behind the Arizona Diamondbacks. Anthony Santander leads the team with 19 home runs, 59 RBI and batting for an average of .255.
Defensively they are allowing 4.13 runs per game and rank #10 in the league. Jordan Lyles leads the pitching staff with a 4.40 ERA, 104 strikeouts and 8 wins recorded.
Jordan Lyles (8-8, 4.40 ERA) will be on the mound for the Orioles in the 1st game of the series. Lyles allowed a run on seven hits and a walk with seven strikeouts in 6.1 innings to earn the win over the Rangers on Tuesday. He has a 2-1 record with an ERA of 7.54 and 14 strikeouts in 5 appearances against the Blue Jays in his career.
Toronto Blue Jays
The Blue Jays get here with a 60-48 record and have lost 3 of their last 5 games. The team is averaging 4.83 runs per game and they're batting for .264 AVG, have 517 runs scored in 967 hits and 139 home runs, ranking #3 in offense in the league behind the New York Yankees. Vladimir Guerrero Jr leads the team with .285 ERA, 68 RBI and 23 home runs. Lourdes Gurriel Jr is batting for .312 AVG.
Defensively as they are allowing 4.24 runs per game and rank #14 in the league. All-Star Alek Manoah leads the team with a 2.43 ERA and 119 strikeouts recording 12 wins for the Jays.
Yusei Kikuchi (4-5, 4.86 ERA) will be on the mound for the Blue Jays in the 1st game of the series. Kikuchi didn't factor into the decision in Wednesday's 3-2 loss to the Rays, giving up two runs on three hits and a walk over four innings. He struck out five. He has a record of 1-2 with an ERA of 5.29 and 14 strikeouts in 3 appearances versus the Orioles in his career.
Toronto Blue Jays are 6-3 SU in their last 9 games on the road.
The total has gone OVER in 7 of Toronto's last 8 games when playing on the road against Baltimore.
The total has gone OVER in 6 of Baltimore's last 6 games against Toronto.
Baltimore Orioles are 14-4 SU in their last 18 games at home.
The Orioles have have been playing really good lately as they have won 7 of their last 10 games and playing even better at home with a 31-21 record. For this game they'll send Jordan Lyles to the mound who has been great in his last 3 starts but allowed 4 runs the last time vs Blue Jays. Toronto continue to play great offense and currently ranking #3 in the league. Yusei Kikuchi will take the mound who has been up and down this season and the Blue Jays have lost in 12 of his 18 starts this season. Both offenses have been good so I expect a high scoring game, also the over has cashed in 9 of the last 10 head to head games. Take the over.
