MLB Pick: Blue Jays vs. Orioles

  • Date & Location: Wednesday, September 7, 2022 at Camden Yards in Baltimore, MD
  • Time: 7:05 p.m. ET
  • How to Watch: Sportsnet, MASN/2, MLB.tv

The Baltimore Orioles have been one of the top teams in the American League since the All-Star Break. The club’s record since then, 25-18 has put them in the hunt for a spot in the 2022 MLB playoffs, but with the team riding a three-game losing skid, those postseason hopes might be dimming. Worse for the Orioles is that the team’s two most recent losses came in a doubleheader to a team they are chasing in the Wild Card hunt, the Toronto Blue Jays.

Toronto was one of the early season favorites to win the AL East, but the team has had an inconsistent season. Right now they are 75-59 and holding onto the third Wild Card spot with a 4.5 game lead on the Orioles. The teams close out their series tonight, September 7 in Baltimore.

Blue Jays vs. Orioles

The Blue Jays put up 15 runs to the Orioles 7 in their doubleheader, which was a big improvement for the Toronto club. One would have to go back to the Blue Jay’s 9-3 win over the Red Sox to find a game where they scored seven or more runs.

The Orioles were doing well heading into their three-game losing skid, but they were shutout by the Oakland Athletics (5-0) before dropping the two games to Toronto.

Baltimore is not a great home hitting team. They rank 16th at home with a team average of .243. Meanwhile Toronto is the second best team in the majors in road hitting with a team average of .264. Toronto ranks fourth in the AL in road home runs with 81, while the Orioles are eighth in the AL in home runs at home with 70.

Toronto has the hitting advantage.
