The Baltimore Orioles lost for the seventh time over the last 10 games on Wednesday night.
Baltimore got out to an early lead off the bat of Trey Mancini in the bottom of the fourth as he hit a solo home run for his 15th long ball of the season. Mancini went 2-for-4 adding a triple and a walk.
The Orioles showed some fight with a big inning of their own scoring four runs in the eighth inning, but the team has struggled to put together offense this season ranking fifth worst in the MLB.
Blue Jays @ Orioles Runline
Toronto is giving Baltimore 1.5 runs in this matchup.
The Orioles hold the slight edge over the Blue Jays for the season series at three games to two.
Similar to Baltimore, Toronto has also lost seven of their last 10 games.
In a matchup like this one with two poor teams, I typically roll with the stronger starter. In this case, that's Marcus Stroman taking the hill for Toronto.

Take the under in this game.
Where the game will be won or lost
As mentioned above, Stroman will be taking the hill for the Blue Jays; he has made 14 starts this season posting a 3-8 record with a 3.31 ERA.
Toronto has lost six of the last eight games Stroman has started, however, I think he's due for a big night against a poor Baltimore lineup with his low ERA.
On the hill for Baltimore will be Gabriel Ynoa, who has yet to find his first win of the season in three starts. Ynoa is 0-2 with a 4.96 ERA, but pitched well in his last outing against the Astros.
Ynoa went six innings allowing three earned runs on just three hits while walking three.
