The American League Wild Card features a pair of AL East foes as the Baltimore Orioles head north of the boarder to take on the Toronto Blue Jays Tuesday.
The winner heads to Texas for a best of 5 ALDS series with the Rangers.
The Baltimore Orioles got everything they could hope for on the final day of the regular season to punch their ticket into the postseason.
A win over New York combined with a Detroit Tigers loss sealed the Orioles fate here. The road is going to certainly be a disadvantage for the O’s though, as they sit 3 games under the .500 mark away from Camden Yards.
Baltimore does however, get some confidence heading into this one. They went into Toronto last week and took 2 of 3, winning a pair of close games to close the series out.
They’ll send out RH Chris Tillman here, who has been the backbone and ace to this rotation.
Tillman has gone 16-6 with an ERA of 3.77 and pitched against the Jays in the series win last week.
Tillman allowed 1 earned run over 5.2 innings of work, giving him something to build off of here in this one.
Toronto Blue Jays
The Toronto Blue Jays had a tough test in their final series as they went into Fenway, needing wins to secure their spot in the playoffs.
Toronto battled after dropping the series opener and took the final 2 games to secure the top Wild Card and get the honor of hosting the AL Wild Card Game.
The Blue Jays are back in the postseason after falling in the ALCS to the eventual World Series Champions. They’ll look to use the home field advantage that they prized so much last season in the ALDS that saw Jose Bautista blast a 3 run homerun in Game 5 that sent the Rogers Centre into pandemonium.
Toronto will send out RH Marcus Stroman. The decision to give Stroman the start, wasn’t easy, as he finished off September 0-5 and has a sub .500 record.
Stroman will have a short leash and will have Francisco Liriano behind him in the bullpen should things go wrong early.

Free Baltimore Orioles vs. Toronto Blue Jays MLB Prediction:
Toronto certainly gets an edge here with home field as they sit 11 games over .500 at home this year while Baltimore is a sub .500 road team.
However, Stroman’s tough end to the season is not a confidence builder in this matchup.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Baltimore +140
Value lies with the Orioles here. They have their ace on the hill and at this price, Tillman is worth a flyer.
