Welcome to Watch Phillies vs Orioles Live Streaming Online Free HD TV Coverage
The Phillies take on the Orioles on Tuesday night in the first game of a brief two game series. Philadelphia has been red hot lately, sweeping a four game series over the San Francisco Giants and then splitting with the Mets over two games, so they have won five of six games overall. They are up to 23-16 and are currently 1.5 games behind the Braves for the division lead in the NL East, a division as contested as any in baseball.
The Orioles will not be any division race this year. They have gotten off to one of the worst starts in their team’s history and are 13-28 right now and a mind boggling 15.5 games out of first place only 1/4 of the way through the season. They did put up 17 runs in their latest game however, a total blowout of the Rays.
Pivetta goes for Phillies
The Phillies turn to Nick Pivetta on Tuesday night and he’ll be looking to go back above .500. He started the season 1-0, lost two straight and then won his latest decision to get back to 2-2. He know faces a team who, despite putting up 17 runs in their latest, has been a light hitting team all year long. Pivetta has been up and down and comes into the game with a 4.15 ERA, but it coming off one of his best starts of the year.
He went five innings in his latest, allowing no earned runs and only four hits in earning the win over the San Francisco Giants. He had no walks and struck out seven batters in the 11-3 blowout. He atoned after losing two straight in which he allowed 1o earned runs over only six innings.Another day has dawned with the Orioles in last place in the American League East. They are now 15.5 games back of the first place Red Sox and Yankees, and after taking three out of four from the Rays this weekend, 4.5 games back of the fourth place Rays. Their winning percentage is finally over .300. Maybe they can eventually take aim at .400.
For now, it seems that we can retire the 1988 Orioles record watch. That team was just 7-34 after 41 games – a full six games worse than the current O’s team. The ‘88 O’s did not win their 13th game until they were 13-42. Let’s hope we don’t have to spend any more time thinking about them.
If you were busy celebrating Mother’s Day yesterday and you missed the game, you missed quite a game! The Orioles thrashed the Rays, 17-1, in what was basically the exact opposite of the Mother’s Day Meltdown.

The week to come will see the Orioles play two games against the Phillies, who have been good, and four games against the Red Sox, who have been great. If we’re lucky, this week will not bring any sort of progress from the last week screeching to a halt.The Phillies won for the fifth time in six games to earn a split of the series shortened to two games by rain.
