The Toronto Blue Jays and Baltimore Orioles aren’t going to be able to win the AL East, but the battle to grab the two wild-card spots is still very much in play. The squads will tangle on the diamond north of the border on Tuesday.
- The total has gone UNDER in the Orioles’ last four games against the Blue Jays.
- The Blue Jays are 9-2 SU in their last 11 games at home after a loss at home.
- The Orioles are 8-2 SU in their last 10 games on the road after consecutive home games.
Kevin Gausman and Aaron Sanchez are the probable starters. Gausman (8-11, 3.57 ERA) is a candidate to start in the potential wild-card game, and he’s going for the first time in a week in this contest. The hurler did not fare well in his last matchup at Rogers Centre, as the Jays ripped him for six runs on six hits and three walks in three innings.
Sanchez (13-2, 3.12) is getting an extra day of rest after holding the Seattle Mariners to one run on four hits across six innings on Wednesday. Sanchez is 3-0 with a 3.38 ERA in four starts against the Orioles this season.
The Blue Jays are known for their high-powered offense, but it’s the UNDER that’s been paying out for them lately. The UNDER is 8-2 in the Jays’ last 10 games.
