The Orioles opened this series in first place but the Jays have already chipped away at that lead by taking the first game. Both of these teams are capable of exploding offensively, especially the Jays, who have been quiet with the bats so far this season. Baltimore is still looking to prove they are going to be a season long contender.
Toronto Blue Jays
The Jays took the series opener behind a strong performance from Marcus Stroman – the Jays starters have been a great surprise this season. The offense, outside of their big three, is still struggling but they did get a big hit from Tulo.
The Jays have changed up the lineup with Michael Saunders now in the leadoff spot and Kevin Pillar batting near the bottom of the order. The two are hitting better even though the lineup has not broken out yet.
Marco Estrada wasn’t ready to take his first turn in the rotation but has looked very sharp early. Both of his starts were against the Red Sox and he was his usual effective and economical self. I am not worried he can’t keep the big Baltimore bats quiet.
The Jays bullpen has been up and down this season. More accurately new pickup Drew Storen has been up and down. Instead of locking down the eighth he has been a question mark. It is still early though. Hopefully the bats make the bullpen irrelevant.
The Orioles are the top slugging team in the Majors. They hit a couple of homers in the opener but it wasn’t enough to get the victory over the surging Jays. I am not sure the O’s can keep up their current pace but this lineup is definitely going to slug a lot of homers this season.
Still I think that offense in very unlikely to sustain a first place position. It is a lot of fun to watch though. Note: Keep an eye on the healthy of Adam Jones. Nothing major but the left the game on Monday.
Chris Tillman is the leader of a group of not quite good enough starters. He is sporting a 1-1 record with splits that show he is much more comfortable at home than on the road. Toronto has traditionally lit him up, to the tune of a 4-10 record and an ERA over five.
Ortiz and Shaw have both been living up to expectations this season and we have to figure out a way to manufacture some runs.

Free Toronto Blue Jays vs. Baltimore Orioles MLB Prediction:
The numbers from the Jays against Tillman speak for themselves and I am not going to get in the way of that freight train. This offense is bound to bust out and this final game of the road stand looks like a great spot.
Estrada will have to be careful but if the Jays put up more than five (I am predicting) more he will be able to cruise to a victory.
