Game 2: Saturday, September 5th  –  1:07 ET
David Price (4-1, 2.28)  vs.  (TBA) – Mike Wright (2-3, 4.99)

Toronto’s ace takes the mound for the Saturday matinee, and what’s not to love? Price did get hit with his first loss in blue and white last time to the mound where he surrendered three earned runs on six hits over 7.0 innings to the Cleveland Indians, but has performed as advertised since the blockbuster trade.

Baltimore could present a great strikeout opportunity for Price, who’s recorded 50 since joining the Blue Jays. Price was originally slated to start the Sunday game, but was flipped with Mark Buehrle to give the veteran an extra day of rest. He’ll still be pitching on a regular schedule.

The Orioles’ starter for this game has yet to be officially announced, but there are a few arrows pointing towards Mike Wright, who has not made a Major League start since June 19th. That most recent start came against your Toronto Blue Jays, where the right-hander lasted just 1.1 innings while allowing four earned runs on three hits and four walks. Encore! Encore!
