BIRD UP: Aug 09

Written by Cartichoke

Tuesday is here, the best day to make money on sports. We are going to do some major league baseball today. The game that I was looking at that caught my eye was a match of two fellow birds. The Toronto Blue Jays and the Baltimore Orioles. Let’s have at it.

Game 2 of this series goes down tonight with Baltimore taking the first game last night by a score of 7-4. The home run ball is what killed the Jays, giving up 4 total home runs last night. Yusei Kikuchi suffered the loss giving up 6 hits and 5 earned runs in 5.0 innings. Jordan Lyles got the win on the Baltimore side.

Pitching for the Blue Jays in Game 2 is Alek Manoah, he has been fantastic so far this season. He is 12-5 on the season with 119 strikeouts, 2.46 ERA and a 0.99 WHIP. The 11th overall pick in 2019 went 6 innings strong last outing against the Twins, only giving up 2 hits and 2 earned runs after losing to a Detroit Tigers squad prior.

Pitching for the Orioles is Kyle Bradish. 1-4 on the season with a 6.55 ERA and 1.65 WHIP while striking out 58 batters. The numbers on Bradish look pretty harsh here, but he has been very solid in his last couple outings. Against the Rangers on August 3rd, he pitched 5.0 innings while only giving up 3 hits and 1 earned run, and the previous game against the Reds he went 5.0 again, giving up 5 hits and 2 earned runs.

Vladdy is on a 19-game hit streak, Teoscar is on a 9-game hit streak, Gurriel is on a 8-game hit streak, Bo Bichette is on a 5-game hit streak. These bats have been on fire lately for the Blue Jays as of late. But they are only 5-5 in their last 10 games.

So, I am going to take the Orioles tonight. Pretty crazy note here, the 2021 Baltimore Orioles team had a total of 52 wins last season. They are currently at 57 wins in the month of August. They even traded one of their best players at the deadline and they're still winning baseball games. They are basically playing with house money at this point and they’re having fun doing it, 7-3 in their last 10 games.
