Case Povich is expected to get the start for Baltimore in this game. This will be his first start in Major League Baseball. He was 5-1 in triple A.

Toronto Scratching Heads

Yusei Kikuchi is the projected starter for Toronto in this game. He comes into the game with a 2-5 record and a 3.66 earned run average. Kikuchi has thrown 66.1 innings and struck out 65 batters, while walking 14. Kikuchi has allowed 6 homeruns through 12 starts this season.

Alejandro Kirk, and Isiah Kiner-Falefa drove in the three runs for the Blue Jays, including a walk-off base hit in the bottom of the 9th inning. The win was a big one for Toronto to avoid losing three straight to the first place team in the division.

The Blue Jays are scoring 3.9 runs per game, which is near the bottom of all of Major League Baseball. Toronto has hit just 52 homeruns, which is a surprise for a team that was projected to be one of the leaders offensively. The Blue Jays have a team batting average of .233, which is 21st.

Toronto Beats Baltimore

With a new pitcher, the Orioles will need to make sure they have the bullpen ready, and the bats going to work. Cade Povich may be great, but he will not be able to go all game. Look for a close game, but the Toronto offense finds a way to win this game, and even the series up.

Our final bet for this game is the Toronto Blue Jays -110 over the Baltimore Orioles.
