The Philadelphia Phillies and the Baltimore Orioles will conclude their interleague series this Wednesday from Citizens Bank Park. Philly struck back in walkoff fashion to take game two, 4-3.

Orioles Betting Preview 

Baltimore comes in at 62-39 after falling to Philadelphia. The Orioles nearly took game two, and they’ll seek some revenge Wednesday. Lhe Baltimore offense is scoring 4.95 runs per game, while batting .252, with a .329 on-base percentage. The pitching staff carries a 4.09 ERA, with a 1.29 WHIP. Adley Rutschmann has produced a run in three of the last five games, and he leads Baltimore in hits (98), with splits of .273/13/43. Anthony Santander has scored a run in five of the last previous games, and he leads Baltimore in HR (17) and RBI (54). Ryan Mountcastle has recorded a hit in four of his last six appearances, and he’s totaled eleven homers and 41 RBI for the season.

Kyle Bradish (6-5, 3.05 ERA, 92 Ks) will take the bump for Baltimore. The sophomore righty pitched well in Tampa last week, holding them to two runs over six innings, but he’d still take the losing decision. This has happened to Bradish a handful of times this season, as he’s allowed two runs or less in his last three losses. Bradish has still managed to be a bright spot for Baltimore this summer, tossing five straight quality starts, while allowing two runs or less in his last seven outings.

Phillies Betting Preview 

Philadelphia moved to 54-47 following the win over Baltimore. The Phillies used heroics to pick up a game two win, and they’ll look to send the O’s packing here. The Philadelphia offense is scoring 4.13 runs per game, while batting .260, with a .324 on-base percentage. The pitching staff carries a 4.47 ERA, with a 1.31 WHIP. Nick Castellanos produced a run in the game one loss, and he’s posting splits of .280/14/59. Bryson Stott set up last night’s magic with an RBI double, and he leads the Phillies in batting (.3000) and hits (112). Kyle Schwarber has plated a run in seven of the last ten games, and he leads Philly in home runs (26) and RBI (62). 

Ranger Suarez (2-5, 4.07 ERA, 55 Ks) will take the mound for Philly. The sixth-year southpaw underwhelmed in Cleveland last week, giving up four runs in five innings en route to his fifth loss of the season. The Park Ranger had a strong month of June, but he’s been shaky here in July, allowing four runs or more in three of his last four starts. 

Baltimore vs Philadelphia Trends

Baltimore is 60-41 ATS this year, with a 52-40-8 over/under record. Philadelphia is 51-50 against the spread this season, with a 48-50-2 O/U record. 

Corey’s Free Pick

Two gritty, neighboring cities will wrap up a hard-fought series this Thursday, and I think the bats find a way to leave their mark in this one after a pair of defensive battles. Baltimore should be able to make the Park Ranger uncomfortable, while Philly’s lineup is always a threat to explode at home. This one could go to the wire again as well, so let’s back the Over for this interleague matchup.

The pick in this article is the opinion of the writer, not a PickDawgz site consensus.
