Bats Carrying Blue Jays

David Phelps will serve as the opener in Game 2 of the doubleheader. It will be his 65th appearance, all coming out of the bullpen. Yusei Kikuchi and Casey Lawrence also are expected to pitch for the Blue Jays.

One thing that we do know about the Jays is that their bats are cooking right now – as they have been all season long. Toronto is first in the league when it comes to batting average at .263.

This team also hits for power and has smashed 199 homers, good enough for seventh in the league.

Regardless of who the Blue Jays put on the mound, their batting has shown to be one of the best in the league to keep them competitive.

Watkins Hitting Mound for Orioles

Spenser Watkins is set to get the ball here in Game 2 against the Blue Jays and he’s 5-6 with a 4.76 ERA.

Unfortunately, he’s not had the best track record when it comes to helping his team win games lately. If you’ve been backing him and the O’s in the sportsbook, you have been losing quite a bit. The O’s have dropped seven of his last eight starts.

He does have some history against the Jays but it isn’t great. The Blue Jays bat .294 against him. Even though it’s a small sample size, Bo Bichette is 2-for-3 and Teoscar Hernandez is 1-for-3 with a jack.

Watkins has allowed four earned runs or more in four straight starts. He’ll have to do better here for the O’s to pick up the win.
