The Philadelphia Phillies need a win to snap an eight-game losing streak. The Phillies have scored three runs in their last three games and three or less runs in seven straight games. The Phillies have lost 15 straight games when scoring three or less runs. Ben Revere leads Philadelphia with 69 hits and 16 RBI while Ryan Howard and Chase Utley have combined for 53 RBI. The Philadelphia Phillies split their last six home games. Kevin Correia takes the hill, and he’s 0-0 with a 0.00 ERA and four strikeouts this season. Correia is 2-1 with a 3.79 ERA and nine strikeouts in his career against the Orioles.
The Orioles are 9-4 in their last 13 during game 3 of a series and 1-5 in Jimenezs last 6 road starts. The Phillies are 8-21 in their last 29 during game 3 of a series and 7-3 in their last 10 games as a home underdog. The Orioles are 5-2 in the last 7 meetings in Philadelphia.
The Phillies remain unbackable, as they continue to find ways to lose and simply have zero offense. Have to pick the Orioles to continue rolling, and I suggest taking the runline to increase the value.
