The Toronto team is taking to the road in this game, however, the problem is the Blue Jays are not playing much better than the Orioles on the year. Normally, this would not be a problem, but now both teams are looking like they could battle all year long for the basement in the AL East. That is why it is so important for the Blue Jays to step up big in this game here and prove they can win not only on the road, but against the weaker Orioles team.
Justin Smoak has been able to hit a total of 12 homers on the year with 33 RBIs driven in. Freddy Galvis has been able to hit at a clip of only .241 this year to lead the Blue Jays.

Dwight Smith Jr. has brought home a total of 41 runners this year and Trey Mancini has been able to hit at a clip of .299.

The Orioles are sending out the better starter in this game and that is odd to say with how poorly Hess has performed this season. What is equally sad is the Orioles are the better team on paper in this game and are ranked lower than the Blue Jays in the standings. Look for that to make a difference as the Orioles are able to make up quite a bit of ground here. Final Score, Baltimore Orioles win 5-2.
