After taking two of three in New York, the Orioles look to keep the momentum going north of the border.

Have they sucked you back in yet? It’s only been three games, but the Orioles winning their opening series may have made you feel something. Sure, nobody expects the club to compete this year, but it’s nice to be back in the win column. Maybe you entered the year hoping the Orioles will do whatever it takes to secure the top pick in the draft, but muscle memory kicked in after the first pitch.

The Orioles will take their two-game “win streak” to Toronto for three games starting this evening. You can check out my series preview from this morning here if you have a few extra minutes.

Cedric Mullins will leadoff and play center field for the Orioles. Dwight Smith Jr. will take left and Trey Mancini will tackle right field again. David Hess will throw to Jesús Sucre, and Chris Davis will hit seventh and play first base.
