andrew cashner baltimore oriolesAfter losing two of three against the Indians in Cleveland, the Baltimore Orioles (37-87) will look to end their road trip on a high note during their three-game series against the Blue Jays (55-69) in Toronto.

The Orioles, cellar-dwellers of the A.L East, have lost eight of their last 10 games. Baltimore arrives in Toronto with a 4-7 record on the road and a 5-12 record overall in the month of August.

The Blue Jays, losers of four straight, will look to bounce back after getting swept in the Bronx over the weekend. They’ve won just three of their last ten and have gone 9-17 since sweeping the Orioles in the first series of the second half back in July.
