The Baltimore Orioles take the field at the Toronto Blue Jays in Wednesday MLB action.
The Baltimore Orioles run at the Wild Card is over following a dreadful week unless we witness a miraculous finish. The Orioles have dropped five straight contests following a 3-2 defeat at the Toronto Blue Jays on Tuesday where the pen couldn’t protect a 9th inning lead. O’s starter Dylan Bundy allowed a run on five hits and struck out eight in six frames before Zach Britton gave up a pair of runs in the 9th for a blown save and a loss. Baltimore managed six hits with Tim Beckham cracking his 21st homer while Mark Trumbo singled in Trey Mancini. Kevin Gausman toes the rubber for the Baltimore Orioles for Wednesday’s matchup at the Toronto Blue Jays. Gausman struggled last time out in a 9-1 loss to the New York Yankees with five runs given up on five hits and three bases on balls in three frames.

The Toronto Blue Jays have won a few games but winning streaks and this team have seldom been mentioned in the same sentence. The Blue Jays kept the good times going with Tuesday night’s win which gave the team their 5th consecutive victory. Jays starter Joe Biagini picked up the win with both runs given up on six hits through eight innings of work. Toronto did their damage on ten hits and three bases on balls with Richard Urena and Justin Smoak driving in runs while Luke Maile scored and recorded an RBI. The Toronto Blue Jays have named Marcus Stroman as Wednesday’s starter versus the visiting Baltimore Orioles. Stroman comes off of a 5-4 defeat at the hands of the Detroit Tigers where he was charged with four runs on six hits and a walk over six frames.
The under is 7-2 in Gausman’s last 9 starts overall. The under is 6-2 in Toronto last 8 Wednesday games and Toronto are 11-4 in their last 15 Wednesday games while the under is 13-5 in Toronto last 18 home games. The under is 20-5-1 in the last 26 meetings.
I see two teams that have shown no consistency or predictability over the majority of the season so there should be no surprise at what happens…
