Philadelphia Phillies vs Baltimore Orioles Date and Time: Thursday, September 23,2021 7:05 am Venue: Citizen Bank Park Prediction: Philadelphia Phillies Bookmaker: 1xbet
The Baltimore Orioles hope to avoid a fourth straight loss when heading on the road to Citizens Bank Park for a clash with the streaking Philadelphia Phillies. It has been a murderer’s row slate for the Orioles with series losses to the Toronto Blue Jays, New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox. Philly, on the other hand, has won their last five games, including a series sweep over the New York Mets.
John Means is expected to get the starting nod at pitcher for the Orioles opposite of Phillies’ lefty Ranger Suarez. The Orioles are currently ranked dead last in the league with the worst run-scoring defense. So they’ll clearly need all of the help they can get on Thursday.
It hardly seems possible with the Orioles basically handing out runs for free this season. They are allowing nearly an average of six runs per game. This game should turn into an offensive soiree at the plate for the Phillies in this series. The Phillies are barely hovering outside of the top-10 offensively this season. So they will really have an opportunity to make things ugly for Baltimore.
