FREE MLB PICK Philadelphia Phillies vs Baltimore Orioles

After a postponement in game one the Philadelphia Phillies and Baltimore Orioles look to take the first game of the series Wednesday afternoon.

The Philadelphia Phillies are possibly the biggest surprise in the early 2018 baseball season. Winners in 7 of their last 10, the Phillies look to keep up with the Braves in the division. The Phillies (23-16) look to be out of their rebuild a season early. One of the biggest contributors to the early season success has been breakout star Odubel Herrera. Batting a National League best .360 Herrera has also added 6 homeruns and 24 RBIs in the three hole this season. The Phillies biggest key to their early success has been their pitching. Philadelphia ranks fifth in the MLB with a 3.44 ERA on the season. On the mound for the Phillies Wednesday afternoon will be Nick Pivetta. Nick has started off the season great with a 2.79 ERA in his first five starts of the season. In the last two games, Pivetta has had a 9.00 ERA this month with a 1-1 record. Nick will look to get back on track Wednesday afternoon with the help of his lineup in Camden Yards.

The Baltimore Orioles on the other hand are one of the biggest disappointments this year in baseball. In the cellar of the AL East the Orioles currently have a 28-14 record. Andrew Cashner will be on the mound for the Orioles Wednesday afternoon. Cashner currently has a 4.84 ERA with a 1-4 record on the season. In his last three starts Cashner has given up 12 runs with a 0-1 record. Cashner will look to snap out of his early season funk with the help of his star hitter Manny Machado. Manny is showing why he is possibly the best 3rd baseman in the MLB. Leading the MLB in RBIs (38), tied for the lead league in homeruns (13), and third in batting average (.350). Machado has possibly been on the trading block all season but keeps playing his game and looks to be one of the best players in baseball.

Perspective: We all knew long ago how the Manny Machado era with the #Orioles would end, because in #Baltimore, we realize far too often that we can't have nice things for very long.
