Moyer pitches for the Phillies today
Today is the end of Interleague play and the Phillies can’t wait for this game to end so that they can get back on course with the regular schedule. The Phils have a 5-12 record against the AL so far but believe it or not, the Phils had a worse record last year in Interleague Play with a record of 4-11. That is why I haven’t been all that concerned with them with the current spat of losses.
The series of losses that the Phillies have racked up have been not good, but it is a long season. The team just needs to get runners on base on keep moving them along with good pitching of course. JA Happ got his first shutout yesterday in the 10-0 win over Toronto and that’s a good thing.
The Phils are 13-9 during day games, and in their last 7 games the Phils have hit .333 with runners in scoring position. A win today will give the Phils their first series win since the early part of June when they beat the Mets 2 or 3 on June 9-11.
