Orioles Going For Series Sweep

The Orioles went almost two months without a series win and will have a chance to pick up their second series win in less than two weeks with a win over the Blue Jays on Sunday afternoon, which will also give them their sixth win in their last nine games.

Offensively, Baltimore is one of the worst teams in the league. The team’s .241 batting average is 25th in the league. Their .303 on-base percentage is 26th, while their .401 slugging percentage is 27th in the league. The 366 runs they have scored is 26th in the league.

Hanser Alberto leads the Orioles with a .310 batting average, while Renato Nunez leads the team with 20 homers and 49 RBI.

Baltimore’s pitching has been as bad as the team’s offense. Opponents have a .271 batting average against the Orioles, which is 30th in the league. Their 5.69 ERA is also 30th, while their 22 quality starts are 26th in the league.

Blue Jays Trying To End Slump

The Blue Jays haven’t played well in their last five games, losing four of those contests. They will try to break out of their slump and end the first half of the season on a high note with a win over Baltimore on Sunday.

Offensively, Toronto hasn’t played well this season. The team’s .233 batting average is 28th in the league. Their .301 on-base percentage is 27th, while their .413 slugging percentage is 22nd in the league. The 386 runs they have scored is 22nd in the league.

Freddy Galvis has done the heavy lifting for the Blue Jays this season, leading the team with a .269 batting average, 15 homers, and 44 RBI.

In his last start, Thornton gave up 11 hits and seven earned runs in 2.2 innings, leading to a 10-6 loss to the Boston Red Sox. The team will need a significantly better performance from him to beat the Orioles on Sunday.
