Blue Jays and the AL East Recap: Week two
By Samuel Bruce
Orioles Keep Singing
Baltimore Orioles: 8-3
The Orioles continued to mash the ball this week, situating themselves as one of baseballs best offenses right out of the gate. Seeing production up and down the line from Chris Davis to Mark Trumbo has helped put them into the driver’s seat on the American League East.
Their bats fought off a loss Monday and Tuesday before the Red Sox finally subdued them on Wednesday. Once out of the division though, the Orioles went on to lose a pair to the Rangers in Texas.
The Baltimore offense is firing on all cylinders. They scored 40 runs in 6 games last week before being rained out on Monday.
This type of production is insane. So despite being handed a pair of losses in Texas, this has not cooled Baltimore’s bats. Their pitching rotation was once again better than originally anticipated, but benefited highly from their gaudy offensive numbers.

Though not immortal, the Orioles continue to crush the ball and continue to look like the real deal at the onset of the season.
