Blue Jays Series Preview: Time to Knockout the Orioles
How does that song go? Two out of three ain’t bad? Well aside from being a catchy Meatloaf tune it succinctly shows how the Blue Jays treated the Yankees and the Red Sox during their visits to the Rogers Centre. The starting pitching held up pretty well in the wins and in the 2 losses…well let’s just say it may have been expected of Marco Estrada and sort of expected of R.A. Dickey the way he has been pitching lately. His 68 home runs given up since being traded to the Blue Jays are the most given up by ANY pitcher in the major leagues. Overall, the Blue Jays have given up more than 6 runs in a game 12 times already this year…

The Orioles have been on a bit of a road journey since April 29 due to the goings on in Baltimore. This will be their first series back since the riots caused them to play in front of an empty stadium and they have gone 4-6 in that time. You know they are going to be fired up and no one more so than Adam Jones who has hit barely over .200 the last week. Look for him to break out again in the familiar confines of Camden Yards and against a team he owns in the Blue Jays.
So how do the match-ups shake out between the Orioles and the Blue Jays?
