Toronto Blue Jays -200 / Baltimore Orioles +185
The Baltimore Orioles and the Toronto Blue Jays will match up in MLB action on Tuesday as they continue their series.
In the Monday game, Baltimore moved to 3-1 on the year with a 6-5 victory.
For Tuesday’s matchup, the Orioles will be sending out Andrew Cashner. In his first action of the season versus the Yankees, Cashner blew up for six earned in 4.0 innings with three strikeouts in a loss.
In Monday’s game, Baltimore was led by Jonathan Villar with a two-run homer, and Trey Mancini, with a homer, two hits, two runs and two RBI.
Over on the Jays’ side, they’re rolling with Marcus Stroman this season. In his first start of the year, Stroman went 7.0 sterling innings against the Tigers, allowing just two hits and seven strikeouts in a no-decision.
Toronto’s Randall Grichuk led the Jays’ offense on Monday with a double and a two-run homer with a pair of runs. Brandon Drury finished with a hit and a run there.
The Orioles are 16-43 in their last 59 in game two of a series and 8-22 in the last 30 Tuesday games. Baltimore is 7-20 in Cashner’s last 27 starts and 0-4 in his last four road starts.
Meanwhile, the Jays are 1-4 in the last five Tuesday games and 1-5 in Stroman’s last six starts. Toronto is 1-5 in Stroman’s last six starts with four days’ rest and 2-5 in his last seven starts versus the AL East.
Well, Cashner had an awful debut this season, but since it was against the Yankees we’ll overlook it. Oddly enough however, the six earned weren’t far off from the numbers he was putting up late last year.
Stroman cruised in his start, but don’t expect that all the time—he’ll get one of those here and there. It’s just too bad he couldn’t get enough offensive help for a win. All things considered though, I like his and the Jays’ chances in this one.
