With the 2015 MLB Season moving closer to the All-Star break in July, the games and players seem to be performing some incredible game changes. This past Tuesday the 16th of July 2015 we saw the Phillies of Philadelphia (22-44) get beat by the Orioles of Baltimore (33-31) with the final score Orioles 19 and the Phillies 3.
The winning pitcher was Tillman who is 5-7 and the losing pitcher was Williams who is now 3-7. This win was the Orioles 8th win in their last 9 games.
This loss for Philadelphia matched a loss record that had stood for some 132 years for the franchise. There were 8 home runs hit in the game, with the Oriole compiling 17 hits and 1 error, while the Phillies had 6 hits and made 2 errors in the game.
Two Phillies players in M. Machado and C. Parmelee both hit 2 HR’s totaling 4 HR’s of the Orioles 8 HR’s in the game. A baseball team that has 8 homers in 8 innings like the Orioles did in this 19-3 rout of the Phillies, it then appears that most of the starting roster had a good day in that outing.
The Phillies remark that seemed to represent the team was that it was the worst road trip, they had taken as of late. That prime comment came from their pitcher who finished the last two innings for Philadelphia. The Oriole have had 7 home runs in 3 different games previously, with the last time being back in September of 2012 playing at Toronto, but this is the first time for 5 HR’s in a game.
The game did not start well for the Phillies as the Orioles Machado hit his 2nd pitch from starting pitcher Williams into the seats in the left field of the stadium, and that started a 6 run 1st inning for the Orioles, and that headed the Phillies to losing their 12th straight road game.
Paramelee, a newcomer to the Orioles roster on that same day had 4 hits that included 2 homers, as he also had 2 RBI’s and scored three runs in the game. The Orioles pitcher Tillman in his 6 innings allowed some 4 hits and 3 runs in his 3rd start this season that lasted through some 6 innings.
Meanwhile, the starting pitcher Williams for the Phillies left the game very early with an injury, after a struggling 1st inning where he only got 2 outs. D. McGowan came in and gave up 5 homeruns in the 3 1/3 innings that he pitched. Their next pitcher Fratus was ejected by the home plate umpire in the 6th, thus the Phillies pitching staff overall had a horrendous outing.
For those that Bet on MLB at an Online sportsbook or at other betting sites, you should know that the Phillies in this 2015 season have the worst overall record at 22 wins and 44 losses in the MLB, and on their road games they have 7 wins and 28 losses, signifying that their home record is 15 wins and 16 losses for the 2015 season to date.
