Blue Jays update

The Blue Jays are 5-9 away from home. They've dropped seven of their past 11 games and haven't been in first place since April 26. Before yesterday's 3-1 win over Milwaukee, the team's ERA over the past seven games was 6.24. With closer Duane Ward on the disabled list all season with right biceps tendinitis, they are 4-for-9 in save situations. Toronto hit 28 homers in its first 17 games, but just nine in its past 14. Before yesterday, the Blue Jays ranked first in the league in runs (186), hits (310), RBIs (175), doubles (65), triples (10), total bases (503) and slugging percentage (.467), and second in batting (.288). Stewart (strained groin muscle) is tentative for Wednesday. Joe Carter, the AL's Player of the Month for April, has sat out the past two games because of dizziness caused by vertigo.

Orioles update

The Orioles have won eight of their past 11 games, and 10 of 14. Outfielder Jeffrey Hammonds (concussion) and third baseman Chris Sabo (back) remain day-to-day and Mike Devereaux (bruised cheek) and Harold Baines (broken toenail) aren't expected to start tonight. The Orioles lead the league with only 14 errors, and their .986 fielding percentage also is tops. Baines has hit safely in eight straight games (12-for-28). Ten of Devereaux's 19 hits are for extra bases, including seven home runs. He leads the club with eight RBIs that have either tied the game or given the Orioles the lead. Rafael Palmeiro has hit safely in 12 of his past 13 games (he walked in his only plate appearance last Saturday). Lee Smith leads the majors with 13 saves.
