Mancini, Peterson go back to back vs. Phillies

MLB.com @Britt_Ghiroli

BALTIMORE -- The Orioles homered on back-to-back pitches in the bottom of the seventh inning during Thursday night's 5-4 loss to the Phillies at Camden Yards, with Trey Mancini and Jace Peterson combining to bring the O's within a run.

Mancini struck first, blasting a two-run homer off starter Nick Pivetta for his 12th homer of the year. Mancini, who was out of the starting lineup on Wednesday to get a little bit of a mental break, sent a 1-1 fastball into center field to also score Mark Trumbo.

Pivetta exited after that two-out homer, but the O's offense didn't stop there. Peterson sent the first pitch he saw from right-handed reliever -- and former Oriole -- Tommy Hunter over the out-of-town scoreboard in right field. The pair of dingers marked the sixth time this season the O's have gone back to back and made it 5-4.
