Orioles continue to cut it close with win over Blue Jays

The Orioles have only scored two runs in 21 innings against the Blue Jays, but Saturday night’s 2-1 victory at Oriole Park had the heady feel of one of those extra-inning wins that made 2012 such a magical year and the O’s still have a chance to win the series if they can muster some offense against Jays left-hander Mark Buehrle. David Lough eventually delivered a game-winning...

Tigers' Verlander solid in spring debut

LAKELAND, Fla. (AP) -- Justin Verlander pitched one-hit ball for four innings in his spring debut for the Detroit Tigers on Tuesday, a 3-2, 10-inning loss to the Toronto Blue Jays. Verlander's spring routine has been postponed by his recovery from core-muscle repair surgery on Jan. 9, and his first scheduled start was rained out last Thursday. The former MVP and Cy Young Award...

Yankees Spring Training Game 6: Home runs continue in win

New York Yankees 8 — Toronto Blue Jays 2 Competing for the fifth spot in the rotation, lefty Vidal Nuno got the task of starting today’s game. An error by shortstop Eduardo Nunez would be erased by Austin Romine who threw out Jose Reyes attempting to steal second base. Nuno would get the second out soon after but slugging right fielder Jose Bautista would get a hold of one and...

Last-place Blue Jays finish at 74-88

Starting pitching was a problem all season for the Toronto Blue Jays, and game 162 was no exception. Todd Redmond was knocked out before the end of Tampa Bay's six-run first inning and the Rays held on to beat the Blue Jays 7-6 on Sunday, clinching a tie for an AL wild-card berth. A season that began with high hopes of ending a two-decade playoff drought soon turned sour in...

Blue Jays-Orioles Preview

With their playoff hopes all but gone, the Baltimore Orioles can turn their attention toward finishing above .500 for the second consecutive season. That goal will have to be obtained without the help of All-Star third baseman Manny Machado. Baltimore begins what could potentially be a very long stretch without Machado on Tuesday night when it opens a three-game set against the...

Blue Jays hammer Yankees in rubber match

If you can’t join ’em spoil ’em. That’s the Blue Jays’ motto these days. They may not be playing meaningful games this month but they can at least do their best to ruin it for those who are starting with the New York Yankees. The Jays dealt a big blow to New York’s playoff hopes by winning Thursday’s rubber match 6-2 thanks to seven strong innings from starter Todd...

A Minor Review of 2013: Blue Jays

There is always a bit of a lull between the end of the minor league playoffs in September and the start of the annual top prospects lists in early November.

MLB Game Picks - Friday: September 13, 2013

Why yes, it is Friday the 13th. That means the picks will have good luck today, right? The 12th was not too bad. Seven out of eleven was not as blah or bad as the previous days. I did not expect the Yankees to win a game that Phil Hughes started. The beleaguered pitcher was yanked after pitching just 50 pitches (and he pitched well). David Robertson tried to give the game back...

MLB Game Picks - Tuesday: September 3, 2013

September is killing me so far. The first two days of the month have been a disaster. The only saving grace has been two straight Game of the Day picks coming in. But otherwise, it has been really bad. And it was bad even considering I correctly predicted Felix Hernandez would lose, the Yankees would win a game that Phil Hughes started and that Mat Latos would pitch better than...

D-backs try to get back on track againts Blue Jays

The Diamondbacks were going to need an incredible September to have any chance of winning the NL's second wild-card spot. But they've gotten off to a poor start to the month after a shaky finish to August, putting a serious dent in their playoff aspirations. Arizona looks to avoid a fifth loss in six contests as it continues a three-game set against visiting Toronto on Tuesday...

Hiroki Kuroda (11-9, 2.71 ERA) is on the mound against Todd Redmond (1-2, 4.44 ERA) to take the series from the Blue Jays. Kuroda hoped to follow up a substandard outing against Boston with a win against the Rays his last time out.

This week has looked a whole lot brighter since going 17-7 over the last two days with the picks. Short schedules like yesterday can be bothersome, but it was navigated with a 6-3 day.

Red Sox Remain Strong Betting Favorites, Can Pad Division Lead Against Toronto
