After a cheap double against the shift down the 1B line by Scott Kingery, Tim Beckham dove into foul territory to take extra bases away from Aaron Altherr and get him at first. Probably the best play he's made this season. #Orioles
The Orioles are benefitting from some pretty bad defense from the Phillies here, but they have their own issues in the field, too. Buck tried to pin it on guys playing out of position today, but that doesn't really hold water given how it's played out. bsun.md/2zJ95bR
Carlos Santana singles to put the Orioles down 1-0. Of the six hits Kevin Gausman has allowed, that one (88 percent hit probability, per Statcast) was the only above 46 percent, if you're wondering how this is going.
Jace Peterson hits Tommy Hunter's first pitch onto the flag court. #Orioles trail 5-4.
