Aaron Sanchez (3.33 FIP) will pitch for Toronto after skipping his last start. The Jays want to manage his workload; the third-year righty is already up to 156.1 innings in his first full season in the bigs. Sanchez is up 1.43 units on a team record of 15-9, with the under checking in at 17-7.
For the Orioles, it'll be veteran northpaw Yovani Gallardo (5.17 FIP), who's having easily the worst season of his career after signing with Baltimore in late February. Despite his struggles, the O's are ahead 0.53 units at 9-9 with Gallardo on the mound, and the UNDER is somehow profitable at 11-7. That wasn't the case in his last start, Friday's 14-4 loss to the New York Yankees (+175 at home) with the total set at 9.5 runs (over –130).
MLB Odds: Will Jays Hex O's in Baltimore?
At press time, the Toronto Blue Jays (75-56, +1.41 betting units) are available at +800 on the World Series futures market, but that bargain won't last the way Toronto is playing. The Jays have won four straight, including Monday's 5-1 win over the Baltimore Orioles (71-60, +9.22 units) as –150 road favorites. Game 3 of this three-game series is Wednesday at 7:05 PM ET on Sportsnet.
The pitching matchup features Aaron Sanchez (3.33 FIP) taking the mound for Toronto against struggling veteran Yovani Gallardo (5.17 FIP). Sanchez skipped his previous scheduled start as part of an innings-management program.
