The Baltimore Orioles will send right hander Jason Hammel to the mound on Wednesday to face the Blue Jays lineup The Orioles hurler has pitched very well this season by sporting a 6-1 record in nine starts with an ERA of 2.78 and WHIP of 1.13. That low WHIP of 1.13 is about one base runner allowed per inning which is extremely well for a pitcher throwing in the American League East where each team competes against one another 18 times in one season. So Hammel faces a lot of the Yankees, Rays and Red Sox and still turns our very good numbers. What we like is behind Hammel tonight is a Baltimore bullpen that has a road ERA of just 1.18 in 91 2/3rds innings pitched in the 2012 campaign. The Orioles have not been swept in a series this season. Team record in Hammel’s seven career starts against Toronto is a perfect 7-0. In his past three starts against the Blue Jays Hammel has allowed just two earned runs in 20 innings pitched.
The Blue Jays will send right hander Brandon Morrow to the hill to battle the Orioles lineup. Morrow has struggled greatly over his past three starts with an ERA of 7.36 with about an average of five innings pitched. That is no good because the Blue Jays bullpen at home has been horrid as the unit sports an ERA of 5.43 in 61 1/3rd innings of work. They allow 1 ½ base runners per inning. Toronto’s pitching has struggled mightily as the team has surrendered nearly 8 runs per game over their past seven games and sport a 2-5 record in that time frame. Hammel rights the ship for the Orioles tonight and will get the necessary run support against the shaky pitching staff of Toronto to get the win at best sportsbooks online.
