Miguel has the stuff to get it done for us. In his last 4 starts he has ate up 25.2 innings and only given up 9 runs for a 3.16 ERA. Toronto is 25th in the league in team average (.244) and Gonzalez has done a sufficient job keeping the opponent off the bases (.246 against).
Another factor going for Gonzalez is that he has only allowed 19 hrs this entire season (92 innings) and when Toronto does excel they do it via the long ball. The Jays are 6th in the league in HRs, only 1 back of Texas and Milwaukee and being tied for 4th place (8 back of the Os and 3rd). Miguel also has a 0.64 GO/AO ratio this season. If he keeps the ball down like he has it should be another great outing.
The Orioles have score the most runs in the month of September (122). We need to get the bats going again tonight. I will also be in attendance tonight to hopefully watch some more Orioles magic and make another postseason push.
