Game 21: Orioles (10-10) @ Blue Jays (11-10), 7:07

Greg M. Cooper-USA TODAY Sports

It's time for the last game of the road trip before the O's head back to Baltimore. They'll look to close out Toronto with a win on Thursday night behind Bud Norris. Drew Hutchison is starting for the Blue Jays.

This series is weird. Maybe it will continue to be weird in the decisive game of the set. At least the final game is not being played at 11am like some other place we might name.

For some more thoughts on today's starting pitchers, as well as how the hitters have performed when facing them, be sure to check out my game preview from earlier this afternoon. Lots of home runs have been hit by both teams in this series. Bud Norris gives up many home runs, especially to left-handed pitchers. The Jays lineup has three switch-hitters and three lefties. But, Bud held them scoreless over seven at Camden Yards two weeks ago, so that's something.

Here are a few facts from the Orioles game notes for tonight:

  • Norris' numbers on the road are equal to Ubaldo Jimenez's numbers at home (0-2, 7.15 ERA, 11.1 IP, 9 ER, 9 SO)
  • Nelson Cruz has a 20+ RBI April for the first time in his career. Miguel Tejada had 31 RBI in 2005 for the Orioles club record.
  • 12 of the Orioles 20 games have been decided by one or two runs. Last year, 82/162 games were decided by that close of a margin.
