Game 68: Blue Jays (40-30) at Orioles (35-32), 1:35 PM ET

Joy R. Absalon-USA TODAY Sports

J.A. Happ faces Chris Tillman, who hopes to put the Orioles in line for a series win.

Loading Scores

The Orioles have taken two of three from the division-leading Blue Jays and have narrowed the first-place gap to 3.5 games. They can make it 2.5 games today. A series win would be a nice way to enter a three-game set with the surprisingly terrible Rays.

The games thus far have been close ones, with scores of 4-2, 4-0, and 3-2. That probably means today's game will be a blowout of some kind. Either that or each team will score six or seven runs. Tillman will have to work to prevent that; although he allowed just one run against Boston his last time out, he walked three and gave up seven hits in addition to three strikeouts.

That doesn't inspire much confidence against the Blue Jays and their offense. But you never know how things will turn out. Maybe Tillman has decided he'd like to throw pitches in the strike zone again and he'll strike out seven while walking one or two.
