The Toronto Blue Jays Vs. Baltimore Orioles “Double Header” On Labour Day- Mon.,Sept.5th,2022

The Blue Jays Vs Orioles game on Labor Day would have arguably been the biggest MLB game of the day. It wasn’t just a single game at Baltimore on Monday, though, as the two AL East contenders played in a doubleheader. Despite rain through most of the day, they were able to get both games in. 

The Blue Jays came through with a sweep (7-3 and 8-4) that could prove to be pretty significant. Let’s dig in. 

Game one was a back and forth battle.  The Orioles was up 1-0 on an Anthony Sandtander homer in the first inning. The Jays would score a run in each the second, third and fifth to make it 3-1 heading to the sixth. The Orioles would score one in the sixth, but the Jays never let them closer and plated an insurance run in the eighth and three more in the ninth to round out their 7-3 victory. 

In the second game, Bichette again collected three home runs and was the star for both games. It appears that he’s in fine form for the month of September. 

On Monday, the Jays are six games behind the  Yankees for the top spot and a game behind the Rays for second.  The series with the Orioles continue in Tuesday night.
