(SportsNetwork.com) - The Toronto Blue Jays will go for back-to-back victories tonight at Camden Yards in the second contest of a three-game set with the Baltimore Orioles.
Toronto's Drew Hutchison (1-1) will get the start while Baltimore will go with Bud Norris (0-1) on the mound. Last night, the Blue Jays won the opener of the series by a 2-0 score.
Right-hander Norris makes his second start of the season.
For the Blue Jays, Hutchison is coming off his poorest of two starts to begin 2014.
Hutchison was kicked around to the tune of six runs, six hits and three walks over just 3 1/3 innings of a 6-4 loss to the New York Yankees in Toronto on Sunday. Five days earlier, he allowed just three hits and three walked in 5 1/3 scoreless innings while beating Tampa Bay, 4-2.
The defeat of the Rays was his first appearance since he'd undergone ligament replacement surgery in his right elbow in 2012.
He's 1-0 in two career starts against the Orioles.
On Friday, Toronto pitcher Dustin McGowan picked up his first victory in the big leagues since 2008 as the Blue Jays blanked Baltimore, 2-0.
McGowan (1-1) gave up five hits over 6 1/3 innings to record his first win since June 22, 2008. It was only the sixth start for the righty since the 2008 season.
Dioner Navarro had an RBI for the Blue Jays, who started a nine-game road trip on Friday. Melky Cabrera went 1-for-4 to extend his hitting streak to 11 games.
Norris was hit hard in his initial start of 2014 on Saturday at Detroit, where he allowed five runs on nine hits in five innings while dropping a 7-6 decision.
In five career starts at Camden Yards, he is 2-1, but has posted a 7.30 earned run average.
In his last game against Toronto, he allowed three runs in seven innings of a 9-5 win on Sept. 25.
Baltimore starter Chris Tillman (1-1) took the hard-luck loss after allowing two unearned runs on three hits while striking out six over eight innings.
Baltimore won last year's season series with the Blue Jays by a slim 10-9 margin.
