The Baltimore Orioles (31-37), will look to sweep the Philadelphia Phillies (36-30).

Jeremy Guthrie (4-7, 5.42 ERA) will start against Cole Hamels (4-2, 4.48 ERA) at 1:35 p.m at Citizens Bank Park.

The Phillies look to get back on track and avoid the sweep. They have the right guy on the mound to do that. Many times this season, Cole Hamels has had high pitch counts. He'll have to work ahead in the count, and keep the pitch count down to work late into the game.

Jermey Guthrie is coming off a tough outing against the New York Mets. He allowed five runs (3 earned) in 6.1 innings, including a three run first inning.

Shane Victorino is batting .429 with a home run in seven at bats against Guthrie. Brian Roberts, the hero for the Orioles last night, is 2-2 with a home run off Cole Hamels.

The Phillies are once again without Ryan Howard, who still has a high fever. Greg Dobbs will get the start.
