First pitch: 1:07 p.m.

TV/Radio: MASN/105.7 FM

Starting pitchers: Orioles RHP Dylan Bundy (1-1, 2.70 ERA) vs. Blue Jays LHP J.A. Happ (0-2, 5.40 ERA)

What to watch

1. Bundy day. Perhaps the day Dylan Bundy pitches out of every five will be the one most anticipated by Orioles fans this year. Bundy has pitched two quality starts in as many outings to start this season. He'll be on the mound as the club goes for the series win against the Blue Jays, who he held to one run in seven innings in his sparkling season debut.

2. Bullpen worries. Buck Showalter indicated Saturday that his top three relievers -- Zach Britton, Brad Brach and Darren O'Day -- were not available. That led to Tyler Wilson pitching in a high-intensity situation with the game tied in the bottom of the ninth. Will the relief options be better today or are there health concerns already?

3. Lefty Sunday. J.A. Happ pitched well in losing to the Orioles in his first start of the season, allowing three runs in seven innings. The Orioles will again put forth their righty-heavy lineup, which has had mixed results this year. The team is hitting .225 against left-handers and .169 when facing a southpaw starter
