2015 Series Discussion: H&H w/ Orioles

Postby BigEd76 » Sun Jun 14, 2015 11:16 pm

We've reached the portion of the MLB schedule where all 30 teams participate in interleague, and the Phils will play 2 at Camden Yards before the Orioles make the trip up I-95 for the first time since 2009. After a 14-year playoff drought, Baltimore has been in the playoffs 2 of the last 3 seasons, finishing with 96 wins in 2014 before eventually getting swept by the Royals in the ALCS, and they're 31-31 so far in 2015, 3 games out, 4th place in a crowded AL East. Prior to this series, the Phils were one of only 4 opponents (ATL, CHC, CIN) that Manny Machado hadn't faced yet in his career. New to this year's club are Wesley Wright (CHC, on the 60-day DL), Travis Snider (PIT), Nolan Reimold (AZ) and rookie RHPs Tyler Wilson and Mike Wright. Gone from last year are Nelson Cruz (SEA), Nick Markakis (ATL), Andrew Miller (NYY), Kelly Johnson (ATL), Nick Hundley (COL), Ryan Webb (CLE) and Steve Lombardozzi (PIT), and Alejandro De Aza was traded to Boston last week. Wednesday is Greek night, and Thursday is another BPS. None of the four Phils starting pitchers were with the team this time last year. Go Birds.
