After dropping the first game of their series Monday, the O’s will try to draw even with the Jays tonight.

Monday’s series opener in Toronto didn’t go too well for the Orioles.

Here’s hoping Tuesday fares a little better.

Monday saw the Orioles fall victim to one of the American League’s best hitters, as Vladimir Guerrero Jr. hit his 37th and 38th bombs in a 7-3 victory. Ryan Mountcastle tried to help the O’s keep pace with his 25th home run, but when a potential MVP candidate is feeling it at the plate, chances are you’re not getting through the game without some bruises.

Fortunately, tomorrow - or, now, today - is another day, and with it comes another chance for the Orioles to beat their Canadian counterparts. Hyun Jin Ryu will get the ball for Toronto, sporting a 12-7 record with a 3.88 ERA. He’s 3-0 against the Birds with a 2.89 ERA.

Meanwhile, the Orioles are going with...oh God, Keegan Akin. There goes the optimism. Akin is 1-8 this season, with a 7.26 ERA. He’s 0-1 against the Jays, with a 12.46 ERA. Oh boy.
