Sunday afternoon Orioles game thread: vs Blue Jays, 1:05

The Orioles look to bounce back from a difficult doubleheader and force a series split.

MLB: Game Two-Toronto Blue Jays at Baltimore Orioles Daniel Kucin Jr.-USA TODAY Sports

The Orioles played a pair of bizarre games yesterday that did not end in their favor. Today, the Birds look to bounce back and force a series split

Zac Lowther takes the hill against a tough Toronto lineup. Lowther limited the Royals to just one run in six innings of work his last time out. The outing marked his first start for Baltimore since May 8 and the first quality start of his career. Lowther, like many other Orioles, is playing for a spot with the club next season.

The Orioles will face former Mets product Steven Matz. Toronto is battling for a playoff spot, and they need to hold serve in the wild car race. A Series split would represent a failure on Toronto’s part and a nice step for a young Baltimore club.

The Orioles have recalled Eric Hanhold and optioned Manny Barrera after yesterday’s doubleheader. Matt Harvey has been transferred to the 60-Day injured list.
