PHILADELPHIA — Bryce Harper threw out the tying run at the plate in the eighth inning and Andrew McCutchen hit a two-run homer to keep the Philadelphia Phillies pushing in the NL East race with a 4-3 win over the Baltimore Orioles. 

The Phillies took two of three against the 103-loss Orioles and now finish the seven-game homestand with four against the 94-loss Pirates.  

The Phillies entered three games behind Atlanta for first in the division. 

The NL East could be decided when the Phillies play at Atlanta next week in a three-game set.
