Pick

Toronto comes into this game after losing five of their last six games and they have dropped to the bottom of the AL East. Baltimore has won four of their last five games and they have been very good on the road. Baltimore is starting Dean Kremer, who has allowed four earned runs over his last 17.2 innings pitched. Toronto is starting Kevin Gausman, who has allowed two earned runs or fewer in four of his last five starts. I like the under in this matchup.
