The first place Baltimore Orioles took on the Toronto Blue Jays on Tuesday night in the start of a three-game series against the team closest to them in AL East.
Toronto is four games behind the Orioles (63-48) heading into arguably its most important series of the year. These division rivals have split 10 meetings thus far, with Baltimore winning four of the last six.
Thanks to five runs combined in the seventh and eighth inning the Birds won 7-3 over the National League East’s best team.
Baltimore manager Buck Showalter has a reputation for having his teams well prepared for every situation. But, as he says: “You can’t teach 6-foot-10.”

Baltimore’s All-Star CF blasted a pair of two-run homers as the Birds beat the L.A. Angels 4-2 in the first game of a three-game series.
Brittany Ghiroli joined Ed and Ken to give a west coast road trip update on the Orioles.
The Baltimore Orioles are in the midst of a 16-game stretch during which they’ll face the top three teams in the loaded AL West.

As for newcomers to the Baysox’ roster, Kendall’s team will see a familiar face tomorrow night, as Bud Norris makes another start in the minors.
“We’re happy to have him, and hopefully it’s a step in the right direction to get him back up here the Orioles.”
Kendall also believes his own team will draw some positives out of Norris returning.
“There’s a good chance that Walker has played behind bud Norris in a spring training game, so there’s not that lack of familiarity, which is great,” Kendall said.
