In the first game of a three-game series against the Milwaukee Brewers on Tuesday, the Baltimore Orioles will be looking to build on their recent success on the road behind Kyle Gibson. The Orioles right-hander is 7-3 with a 3.89 ERA on the season. Gibson has won his last three starts, posting a 1.83 ERA while giving up just four runs in 19.2 innings. He has only allowed six home runs all season and none in his last four starts. In seven career starts against the Brewers, Gibson is 1-2 with a 5.67 ERA, including 1-1 with a 4.94 ERA in five games at Milwaukee.

The Brewers won the first three games of their weekend series with the Reds before falling to Cincinnati 2-0 on Monday. Reds left-hander Andrew Abbott, who was pitching in his first major league game, allowed just one hit over the course of six innings.

When scoring four runs or more this season, Milwaukee is 28-4; when producing three runs or fewer, they are 4-24. The Brewers play 12 of their next 14 games at home after going 4-3 on their recent road trip.

Baltimore, which was idle on Monday, won two of the three games it played against San Francisco, including the series-clinching 8-3 victory on Sunday. The Orioles have won eight out of their ten road series, improving to an American League-best 20-10 away from home. The Orioles still have the third-best record in the majors, behind the Texas Rangers and the Tampa Bay Rays, despite splitting their last 10 games overall.

Aaron Hicks was recently acquired by the Orioles after being released by the New York Yankees. He has helped the Baltimore offense. Hicks has played in four games and is hitting .455 (5-for-11) with a triple and three walks.

Freddy Peralta (5-5, 4.62) gets the start for Milwaukee. Peralta has had a tough go of it recently, having failed to win in three of his last four starts. Despite allowing three runs on two first-inning home runs in his most recent start, a 3-1 loss at Toronto on Thursday, he managed to last six innings.

Prior to that one, Peralta lost to San Francisco at home by a score of 15-1 after allowing 10 runs (four earned) on eight hits over 2.1 innings. When Peralta is on, he is powerful. In his five wins this season, he pitched at least six innings and has a 2.10 ERA. In six home starts, he is 4-2 with a 3.38 ERA. In five road starts, he is 1-3 with a 6.04 ERA. Opponents are hitting .254 against Peralta and he has allowed 10 home runs so far this season.

Historically, the Brewers have had success against the Orioles, especially at home. Milwaukee has won seven of the last eight games against Baltimore. In the last five games played in Milwaukee, the Brewers are 5-0 SU against the Orioles.
