3* MLB SMASH
Baltimore vs. Toronto,
05/28/2012 19:07 EDT,
Score: 2 - 6
Money Line: -131 Toronto
3* MLB SMASH on Blue Jays -131
Baltimore's Tommy Hunter is struggling (5.21 ERA L3 starts), especially on the road where his ERA is 7.43. The Blue Jays have already seen him twice this season, and I expect them to hit him hard like they always do North of the Border. Hunter has a 6.66 ERA in 8 career starts versus the Jays and has given up 18 runs in 19 1-3 innings in 3 career starts in Toronto.
Toronto's Drew Hutchison has faced the Orioles once and pitched well in that meeting, giving up just 2 runs in 5 innings. That outing was in Baltimore and I expect him to be even sharper at home where the Jays have won both of his starts. Hutchison was hit hard his last time out but before that limited the Twins and Yankees to a total of 2 runs in 12 innings.
The last thing the O's want to see right now is a righty as they are 0-5 in their last 5 games vs. a right-handed starter. Also, the Jays are 16-5 in their last 21 and 41-13 in their last 54 at home versus Baltimore. Take Toronto.
