Jays lineup and pre-game notes

Bad news for MASN's Amber Theoharis. Due to the Canadian exchange rate, she's only in her first trimester.

Here's the Blue Jays lineup:

LF FRED LEWIS
SS YUNEL ESCOBAR
RF JOSE BAUTISTA
CF VERNON WELLS
DH ADAM LIND
2B AARON HILL
1B LYLE OVERABY
3B EDWIN ENCARNACION
C JOSE MOLINA

Hope you enjoyed the caps. I wasn't yelling at you. That's just how I received it in an e-mail and I did a cut-and-paste.

The Blue Jays lead the season series 9-0 and have outscored the Orioles, 48-16.

The Orioles have dropped eight consecutive games at Rogers Centre and 17 of their last 19.

The Orioles are 0-7 on Mondays this season, including 0-4 on the road.

Most surprising to me is they've only played seven Monday games.

During the 10-game homestand, the Orioles were 14-for-88 (.159) with runners in scoring position and stranded 68 runners. Their opponents went 32-for-99 (.323) with RISP and left 88 runners on base.

In 10 games batting cleanup, Luke Scott is hitting .350 (14-40) with three doubles, four home runs, eight RBIs and 10 runs scored. He's hit safely in his last 10 games played dating back to June 27, batting .486 (17-35) with six doubles, five homers, 10 RBIs and 10 runs scored.

After recording just six doubles in the first four games after the All-Star break, the Orioles have totaled 15 doubles and seven home runs in the last six games.

Cesar Izturis is eight hits away from 1,000 in his career.

Let's hope it happens at Camden Yards so we can watch the numbers drop from the warehouse.
