Jays pitchers have proven tough to hit

You probably could guess that one reason the Orioles are just 3-13 on the year vs. Toronto is all the homers the Blue Jays hit vs. O’s pitching.

Through Friday, Toronto has out-homered the Orioles 30-7.

But, also consider the fact that Toronto’s team ERA is 2.51 vs. the O’s.

In fact, the Orioles score fewer runs per game vs. the Jays this year than any other AL East staff.

O’s runs per game and OPS vs. AL East teams:
*Boston: 4.6 and .729
*New York: 3.1 and .660
*Tampa: 4.1 and .746
*Toronto: 2.8 and .678

By the way, the Jays have hit two more solo homers today as Aaron Hill and Travis Snider have connected off Jeremy Guthrie, but the O’s lead 3-2 in the 4th at Rogers Centre, where they are trying to break a 12-game losing streak.
