MLB comes to Citizens Bank Park where the Philadelphia Phillies host the Baltimore Orioles.
The Baltimore Orioles are gunning for back to back victories after an 8-2 win against the LA Angels on Sunday snapped a seven game slide. Baltimore starter Kevin Gausman improved to 4-6 with two runs scoring on six hits over eight frames.

The Orioles banged out ten hits and walked twice with Trey Mancini going solo while Manny Machado went 2-4 with a homer and two RBI’s. Mark Trumbo gave the O’s a pair of solo jacks and Tim Beckham singled in a pair followed by Steve Wilkerson who drove in a run and scored.
Alex Cobb draws the starting assignment versus Philadelphia on Tuesday night. Cobb comes off of an 8-7 loss (ND) versus Seattle with five runs given up on eight hits and three BB over 4.2 frames.
The surging Philadelphia Phillies have been hanging tough in the NL East as the team defeated Washington 4-3 in 13 innings for their 4th win in five contests. Philadelphia starter Jake Arrieta allowed three runs (two earned) in five innings before eight relievers tossed shutout baseball.
The Phillies logged seven hits and walked six times with Cesar Hernandez, Rhys Hoskins and Odubel Herrera driving in runs before Andrew Knapp clubbed a pinch hit walk off homer in the 13th.
Philadelphia s hoping Zach Effin can remain hot when he toes the rubber against Baltimore Tuesday. Efflin has won five straight outings after a 3-0 win versus the Yankees with a seven inning performance.
Baltimore are 14-43 in their last 57 road games and are 6-17 in their last 23 interleague games and are 10-28 in their last 38 Tuesday games. Under is 7-1 in Philadelphia last 8 home games and over is 10-3 in Philadelphia last 13 games following a win and under is 9-3-1 in Philadelphia last 13 Tuesday games.
