Mark Buehrle will try to continue his near-perfect start to the season when the Toronto Blue Jays go up against Ubaldo Jimenez and the Baltimore Orioles Sunday afternoon.
Mark Buehrle has had a fantastic start to the season by winning both of his games and maintaining the lowest ERA in the league at 0.64. In his last start, he went just 5.1 innings, but he held the Houston Astros to just one earned run on eight hits.
The Orioles will surely have Delmon Young in the game to face Buehrle as he has had plenty of success against the lefty in the past. In 42 at-bats, Young has 15 hits against Buehrle, including a double and three home runs. Nick Markakis has also hit him well with a batting line of .447/.500/.711 with four doubles and two home runs in 38 at-bats.
Ubaldo Jimenez hasn't had the luck that Buehrle has had so far this season. He has lost both of his starts, and his second one was worse than his first. Last Monday he was on;y able to get through 4.2 innings and gave up four runs on eight hits and five walks. He struck out four, but they didn't mean much in a game where he had very little command of his pitches.
Colby Rasmus has faced Jimenez more than any other player on the Blue Jays and has had plenty of success against him. Rasmus has eight hits in 24 at-bats against Jimenez, including four doubles and a triple.
