The Toronto Blue Jays look for another win after splitting their last 12 games. The Blue Jays have scored 17 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in seven of their last nine games. The Toronto Blue Jays have won seven of their last 10 games when scoring more than three runs. Kevin Pillar leads the Blue Jays with 139 hits and 41 RBI while Justin Smoak and Kendrys Morales have combined for 264 hits and 163 RBI. Joe Biagini gets the ball, and he is 3-10 with a 5.29 ERA and 89 strikeouts this season. Biagini is 0-2 with a 2.31 ERA and 19 strikeouts in his career against the Orioles.
The Orioles are 4-1 in their last 5 during game 2 of a series, 1-4 in Bundys last 5 starts vs. American League East and 7-1 in Bundys last 8 starts. The Blue Jays are 3-8 in their last 11 vs. American League East, 0-4 in their last 4 Tuesday games and 0-5 in Biaginis last 5 starts. The Orioles are 5-2 in the last 7 meetings in Toronto, 11-5 in the last 16 meetings and the under is 19-6-1 in the last 26 meetings.
The Orioles are only an effective team when they're putting up a ton of runs, and they haven't done that at all recently. The O's also have struggles when playing outside of Baltimore. Biagini simply hasn't been a good pitcher, but a lot of his recent games have been on the road. Either way I don't like the way the Orioles are playing right now, so I'm going to take the Blue Jays to get another victory at home.
