Orioles-Blue Jays: How to Watch, Stream & Bet Apple TV's 'Friday Night Baseball'

The Toronto Blue Jays are looking to put the Cinderella story of the Baltimore Orioles to bed this weekend, and they’ll play Game 1 on Apple TV Friday night.

Entering action on Thursday, with the Blue Jays concluding their series with the Tampa Bay Rays, the team sits 5.5 games ahead of the Orioles in the Wild Card race, while the O’s are just four games out of the third Wild Card position. 

With Mitch White getting action for the Blue Jays in their doubleheader on Tuesday, the team is without a fifth starter ahead of this Game 1 on Friday, meaning it’s listed as TBD and could ultimately be a bullpen game for them. 

Looking at the Orioles, Austin Voth is expected to make the start on Friday, and he’s tallied a 5-2 record with a 4.36 ERA and 78 strikeouts.

Will the Orioles Stay Alive in AL Playoff Race?

Even with the Blue Jays having a nice stretch of play against the Tampa Bay Rays this week and winning their series, that’s helped the Orioles, seeing as they now sit just four games back of a playoff position. Before their last series against Toronto, Baltimore had been successful in this season series, meaning they could feast in this opening matchup, especially if the Blue Jays go with a bullpen game.
