The Toronto Blue Jays' bats have been relatively quiet so far.
Facing the Baltimore Orioles would normally give the Blue Jays a chance to turn things around, but that may not be the case this time.
Toronto looks to maintain its home-field edge over the Orioles on Friday (7:07 p.m. ET) when these American League East rivals meet for the first time in 2012.
Despite getting off to a 4-2 start after winning two of three over Boston earlier this week, the Blue Jays have struck out 54 times and are batting .202 following their three-hit effort in Wednesday's 3-1 victory.
Two-time reigning home run champion Jose Bautista has one of the team's four homers and is hitless in his last 12 at-bats.
"He's struggled to find his timing," manager John Farrell said. "… But there were times last year, and I'm sure the year before, where he goes through some stretches where his timing is off a little bit."
Bautista hit .219 (14-for-64) with two homers against Baltimore in 2011, when Toronto batted .280 with 29 home runs while winning 12 of 18 in the series.

The whole team seems to be off to a slow start hitting wise, concerned or do you just consider it normal for the start of the season?
