TORONTO — The Toronto Blue Jays will be looking to sweep the Baltimore Orioles on Wednesday afternoon by winning the finale of the three-game series at the Rogers Centre.A victory would mean more than a series sweep for the Blue Jays as it would allow them to complete an umblemished home schedule against the Orioles this season at 10-0.By clubbing four solo home runs in an 8-2 victory Tuesday night http://www.whitesoxfanproshop.com/authentic-michael-jordan-jersey , the Blue Jays moved to 11-1 against the Orioles this season. The Orioles’ only win over the Blue Jays this season was April 11 in the finale of a three-game series at Camden Yards.Article continues below ...The teams still have two more three-game series in Baltimore this season.The Blue Jays already have clinched their first home series win since they swept the Orioles in three games July 20-22.The Orioles will start right-hander David Hess (2-7, 5.95 ERA) on Wednesday while the Blue Jays will send out left-hander Thomas Pannone (0-0, 4.15), who will be making his first major league start.Pannone made his major league debut Aug. 10 and has appeared in four games as a reliever.Pannone started six games with Triple-A Buffalo this season and had a 4.91 ERA and 1.28 WHIP with 40 strikeouts in 36 2/3 innings. He has pitched in only nine minor league games this season, going 0-4 with a 5.36 ERA, including stints at Class A Dunedin and Double-A New Hampshire because of an 80-game suspension after testing positive for a performance-enhancing substance.The 24-year-old was obtained in July last year in a deal that sent reliever Joe Smith to the Cleveland Indians.Hess made his major league debut May 12, winning two of his first three starts. He has not won since May 25, going 0-6 with a 6.61 ERA in 11 outings (nine starts) since his last win.He received a no-decision in his only appearance against the Blue Jays Carlton Fisk Jersey , allowing one run in six innings of Baltimore’s 5-4 loss at Toronto on June 7.Kendrys Morales hit one of the Blue Jays’ homers against the Orioles on Tuesday to add to the two he hit in the series opener on Monday. He has homered in three consecutive games for the third time in his career. The other two times were in 2016.He also had an RBI single in going 3-for-4 on Tuesday.Morales had overcome a poor start and now is batting .257 with 17 homers and 47 RBIs. He was slashing .188/.260/.312 on June 5.“He’s dangerous, he’s always dangerous,” Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said. “But he works hard, too. He’s the first guy here just about every day, he spends his day in the cage. If anybody was going to come out of it, it was him.”Billy McKinney hit his first career home run for the Blue Jays.Toronto center fielder Kevin Pillar was 1-for-4 with a double and has an eight-game hit streak, batting .419 with six doubles, one home run and eight RBIs during the streak.The Blue Jays scored seven of their runs and hit three of their homers against Orioles starter Dylan Bundy. The Orioles also suffered defensive lapses behind him http://www.whitesoxfanproshop.com/authentic-jose-abreu-jersey , making two errors.“We’ve got to make some plays behind him,” Orioles manager Buck Showalter said. “But his finish, the shape of his pitches, that’s very unlike Dylan. This is probably the toughest stretch that he’s had. It seems like every mistake he makes he’s paying a price for it.”Cedric Mullins hit his second career homer for the Orioles in going 1-for-4 on Tuesday. He hit his first big-league homer on Saturday at Cleveland. He has reached base in 10 of his first 11 major league games since making his debut Aug. 10 and is batting .333 (13-for-39) with five doubles, two homers and four RBIs. BALTIMORE (AP) — Cemented together by a seven-year contract, the Baltimore Orioles and Chris Davis are staggering toward the finish of a historically horrid season for both the franchise and former home run king.With 35 games to go, Davis is batting .163. He’s on track to break the record for lowest batting average by a qualifier since 1900, .179 by Rob Deer in 1991 and Dan Uggla in 2013.That’s one glaring reason why Baltimore owns the worst record in the big leagues (37-90). The Orioles will need a late surge to better the 54-107 ledger of 1989 Melky Cabrera Jersey , the low-water mark since the team moved from St. Louis in 1954, and are still a threat to top the franchise mark of 111 defeats, set in 1939 by the Browns.The Orioles went into full rebuilding mode in late July, trading away stars Manny Machado, Zach Britton and Jonathan Schoop. The 32-year-old Davis doesn’t fit into the team’s plan to get younger, but his hefty contract — which does not expire until after the 2022 season — makes him impossible to unload.So, the best the Orioles can hope for is that he ultimately rediscovers his swing.“Chris is a guy that can get going and really do a lot of damage for a club for an extended period of time,” manager Buck Showalter said.The Orioles were a contender when they signed Davis to a $161 million contract in January 2016. Davis was coming off a season in which he hit a major-league leading 47 homers and had totaled 159 long balls and 412 RBIs over the previous four years http://www.whitesoxfanproshop.com/authentic-jeff-keppinger-jersey , helping Baltimore reach the playoffs twice during that span.His batting average dipped from .262 to .221 in 2016, but he had 38 home runs and 84 RBIs during a year in which the Orioles entered the postseason as a wild card.Davis battled an oblique injury last season and hit .215 with 26 home runs in 128 games. He subsequently hit bottom this year: He’s struck out 158 times, gotten only 63 hits and has 15 home runs and 41 RBIs.A pair of two-hit games over his last seven starts, however, provided a small measure of hope that maybe — just maybe — he can shake this extended slump.“I think it’s really taking it one at-bat at a time. Not getting too high or too low,” Davis said. “Not trying to hit a home run, but just going up there and trying to be a hitter.”He hears boos at Camden Yards after every strikeout. Throughout it all, Davis has strived to keep an even keel.“It’s too easy a lot of times to get caught up in the negative and sometimes even to get caught up in the positive and let your guard down Joe Crede Jersey ,” he said. “For me, I want to finish up strong. I want to work on some things and go into the offseason with a head of steam.”Any momentum would be perceived as a plus.“That’s a big part of it,” Davis said, “just trying to get something going and seeing how long I can make it last.”
