TORONTO -- A struggling Ubaldo Jimenez takes the mound for the Baltimore Orioles in Thursday's rubber match against the Toronto Blue Jays.
The 33-year-old failed to make it through three innings his last time out, allowing nine earned runs on seven hits and four walks over 2 1/3 innings against the Tampa Bay Rays.
"It's been tough," Jimenez told the Baltimore Sun following his June 23 start. "It's been really tough. It's not easy to come to the stadium every day knowing that you're going to struggle. I know we're all expecting that this is going to end one of these days, but it just keeps happening. The only thing we can do is keep being positive and fighting every day."
