Toronto vs Baltimore Probable Pitchers

The 24-year-old Manoah has been one of the best pitchers in baseball this season. Toronto has only managed a 13-8 record in his starts, but a whopping 17 of those turns have  been of the quality variety. However since the start of July, the burly righthander owns a comparably pedestrian 3-3 mark with a 3.47 ERA. He got hit with a comebacker off the bat of Jonathan Schoop on July 29th, but X-rays did not reveal a fracture.

He went six innings against the Twins in his most recent appearance last Thursday, allowing just two hits, two earned runs and four walks while striking out five in a 9-3 victory.

Meantime, Baltimore has gone 7-5 in Bradish’s starts in 2022 — a pair of which have been of quality vintage. The 25-year-old rookie missed more than a month of action with a shoulder injury between late June and late July, but he’s looked sharp in two starts since his return as Baltimore is easing him back into the rotation.

Bradish went five innings last Wednesday against Texas, allowing three hits, an earned run and three walks while striking out five in an eventual 6-3 win.

Toronto dropped the opener in the series by a score of 7-4 on Monday, but still owns a 10-6 record since the break. Matt Chapman was the offensive star for the Jays in defeat, going 2-for-3 at the plate and launching his 22nd homer of the season.

Two-time All-Star first baseman Vladimir Guerrero Jr is hitting .355 over the last seven days. He’s joined by Teoscar Hernandez, Cavan Biggio, Lourdes Gurriel and newcomer Whit Merrifield in a group all hitting .300 or better.

Meantime, Baltimore had three players with at least two hits in Monday’s three-run victory — with all three going deep. That group included Anthony Santander, Ryan Mountcastle and Austin Hays.

Ramon Urias also went yard in the win as the O’s continue to get just enough good pitching with a balanced offense and stack wins.

The Orioles currently have +25000 odds to win the Fall Classic, while the Blue Jays are at +1500 in the World Series odds.

Blue Jays vs Orioles Prediction

We said Yusei Kikuchi has  been the weakest link on Toronto’s starting staff this season prior to the opener — and that proved to be the case.

Yes, the O’s have taken three of the first four games between these two squads this season. But, behind Manoah — who has been borderline elite in 2022 — I say the Jays bounce back in a big way and take the second game of this important series between division foes and postseason contenders.

Pick: Blue Jays -1.5 (-105)
