Oriole Park at Camden Yards - Baltimore, MD

Phillies 23-16, 2nd place in the N.L. East, 1 1/2 games behind the Braves
Orioles 13-28, 5th place in the A.L. East, 15 1/2 games behind the Yankees

Phillies Probables:  Nick Pivetta (2-2, 4.15), Vince Velasquez (3-4, 5.05)

At the Ballpark:  There are no giveaways scheduled for this brief two-game series.  It's a shame this series takes place in the middle of the week.  Had it been a weekend series, we would have tried to make it to at least one of the games.

I love today's customs! Seeing 1960's players on that 1978 design makes me think that Topps REALLY needs to use this design in Archives.
