The Baltimore Orioles will be trying to pick up their first series win since April when they take on the Toronto Blue Jays in the second game of their three-game series on Wednesday night. The game will be played at Oriole Park at Camden Yards and it is scheduled to begin at 7:05 PM. ET.

Edwin Jackson, 0-4 with an 11.90 ERA, will get the start for the Blue Jays. The Orioles will turn to David Hess, who is 1-8 with a 7.08 ERA.

Blue Jays Trying To Snap Losing Streak

The Blue Jays came into this series on a four-game losing streak after getting a series win over the division-leading New York Yankees. They will try to bust out of their slump with a win over the Orioles on Wednesday night.

Offensively, the Blue Jays have struggled this season. The team’s .218 batting average is 30th in the league. Their .284 on-base percentage is also 30th, while their .377 slugging percentage is 28th in the league. The Blue Jays have scored 242 runs this season, which is 27th in the league.

Freddy Galvis leads the team with a .241 batting average, while Justin Smoak leads with 12 homers and 33 RBI.

Toronto’s pitching has also been bad this season. Opponents have a .253 batting average against the Blue Jays, which is 19th in the league. Their 4.59 ERA is also 19th, while their 18 quality starts are 27th in the league.

In his last start, Jackson gave up six hits and six runs in 3.1 innings, leading to a 6-2 loss to the Yankees. They will need a significantly better effort from him when they play on Wednesday.

Orioles Going For Second Win In Seven Games

The Orioles haven’t played well this season and haven’t won a series since April, which is one of the reasons they are in last place in the AL East. Despite their poor play, they have to like their chances against the Blue Jays, who have also been struggling. They will try to pick up their second win in their last seven games on Wednesday.

Baltimore’s offense is among the worst in the league. The team’s .237 batting average is 23rd in the league. Their .297 on-base percentage is 25th, while their .400 slugging percentage is 24th in the league. The Orioles have scored 261 runs this season, which is 26th in the league.

Trey Mancini leads the Orioles with a .299 batting average. Renato Nunez leads the team with 16 homers, while Dwight Smith Jr. leads with 41 RBI.

The Orioles have also struggled on the mound. Opponents have a .265 batting average against the Orioles, which is 27th in the league. Their 5.53 ERA is 30th, while their 17 quality starts is 20th in the league.

In his last start, Hess gave up eight hits and four runs in six innings, leading to a 4-3 loss to the Texas Rangers. The team will need a better effort from him to give themselves a chance to win on Wednesday.
