The Orioles have won nine out of their last ten games, which also includes a stretch in which they took five out of six from the division-rival Yankees and Red Sox in back-to-back series. Baltimore is currently riding a three-game win streak, all coming against the Phillies, and looks like they are rounding back into last year’s form that took them to the playoffs.
Toronto has been just as impressive, recently having their 11-game win streak snapped on Monday. The Blue Jays are swinging some of the hottest bats in baseball and have one more game against the New York Mets before starting the series against Baltimore. The big reason for their surge has much to do with Toronto’s batting order, which leads baseball in runs scored as team.
The Orioles are in the midst of an eight-game road trip. After playing two games against the Phillies at home, they traveled to Philadelphia to complete the home-and-home series. The Orioles won yesterday, 6-4, and will look for a four-game sweep in tonight’s affair.
The Blue Jays and Rays have both vaulted themselves back into the American League East division race. The Orioles are two games back of the Tampa Bay Rays, who sit in first place at 37-30. The Blue Jays (35-32) are only two games back, and have one more win and one more loss than the Orioles (34-31).
Toronto has been been great at Rogers Centre, going 21-12 in their 33 home games played this season. If they can continue to rake like they have been on a daily basis, this is a team that definitely could be bound for the playoffs come October.
