Time: 7:07 PM ET
Date: Monday, August 20, 2018
Where: Rogers Centre, Toronto, Ontario
Watch on: MASN, Sportsnet, TVA
Odds: Blue Jays -170
Total O/U: 9½u (-115)

The reeling Toronto Blue Jays will attempt to get back into the winner’s circle and will look to snap a four-game losing streak as they get ready to resume hostilities with the Baltimore Orioles. The two AL East division rivals are scheduled to compete in the first installment of a three-game series with the contest set to be broadcasted on the ESPN+ network Monday night at 7:07 p.m. ET and live from Rogers Centre in Toronto, ON.

The Blue Jays, who have won nine of the last ten contests played in Canada, enter this tilt as a -170 home favorite, according to Bovada Sportsbook, with the total sitting on 9½ runs. RH Andrew Cashner (4-10, 4.71 ERA) will attempt to capture back-to-back victories as he is set to thread the mound for the Orioles while RH Marco Estrada (6-9, 4.87 ERA) will also look for consecutive wins as he gets the call in the opener for the Blue Jays.

After suffering his worst career loss in which he allowed 10 runs on 7 hits in a career low 1 2/3 innings in a loss to the Rangers back on August 2, Cashner rebounded by collecting 2 consecutive quality starts in his last 2 outings. The 31-year old allowed 2 runs across 5 hits with 3 walks and 3 strikeouts in 7 innings in a 6-3 win over the Mets last Tuesday. The Texas native is 1-1 with a 2.27 ERA in five-career starts against the Blue Jays.

Estrada has struggled a tad since coming off the disabled list from a left glute strain back on July 30. Despite winning two games, the 35-year old allowed four or more runs in three of his last four starts since the injury. The Long Beach State product yielded 4 runs on 6 hits with a walk and 3 strikeouts in 6 2/3 innings in a 6-5 win against the Royals back on Wednesday. The Mexico native is 8-2 with a 3.44 ERA in 15-career starts against the Orioles.

Pitching Matchup:
Orioles: RH Andrew Cashner (4-10, 4.71 ERA)
Blue Jays: RH Marco Estrada (6-9, 4.87)
