Fresh off a banner Sunday, the Baltimore Orioles are set to take on the Philadelphia Phillies. Here’s where you can watch.

There may be rain in the forecast, but with the way the Baltimore Orioles have been playing, it doesn’t seem likely to dampen their spirits. After outscoring the Tampa Bay Rays by a margin of 26-14 over the weekend, the Birds will host the Philadelphia Phillies for the final leg of their home stand.

The Phillies have been a far superior team this year, but with Manny Machado entrenched in the third slot, the O’s lineup features one of the most dangerous hitters in baseball. The shortstop leads the AL with 13 home runs and 38 RBIs, and his .350 batting average puts him just 12 points behind the league leader, Mookie Betts. In other words, Machado is just two hits shy of being on pace for the Orioles’ first Triple Crown season since Frank Robinson in 1966.

He’s only gotten hotter as the season has progressed, slashing .376/.455/.788 since April 19. At this rate, Phillies fans might be hoping for a postponement or two.

Weather report

The temperature will soar to almost 90 degrees on Tuesday, but things should be much more comfortable come game time. The real threat is the chance of rain: Baltimore should get a healthy dose on Tuesday night, and there’s thunder in the forecast for Wednesday. The foul weather will continue all week, so the Birds may actually be glad to be back on the road when they face the Red Sox on Thursday.
