Blue Jays update Blue Jays statistics

At this time last season, Toronto was 59-44 with a .586 winning percentage and atop the American League East. This year has seen a dramatic turnaround for the Blue Jays, who were 47-52 and in fourth place of the five-team East going into last night's game against Milwaukee. But Toronto has made some progress since July 3, when the Blue Jays were 13 games under .500. Before losing two straight to the Brewers, Toronto had an eight-game winning streak. But in six meetings with the Orioles, the Blue Jays have yet to win. Pitching has been a sore spot. Only Tony Castillo and Pat Hentgen have winning records with Hentgen being Toronto's most consistent starter at 12-7 with a 3.26 ERA. But Hentgen won't pitch against the Orioles. The Toronto bats have been lively, with designated hitter Paul Molitor leading the way with a .348 batting average before last night -- good enough for fifth in the American League. He also was second in hits with 135. Right fielder Joe Carter was batting .266, but was third in the league with 89 RBIs.
