Moyer hopes to keep San Fran off balance as he did in Arizona
Jamie Moyer takes the mound tonight for the Phillies in San Francisco. He looks to keep the Phillies from losing the series and staying one step ahead of the Florida Marlins and the New York Mets who are just behind the Phillies at 11-9.
The Phillies bring their 11-8 record against a resurgent Giants team who are also at 11-8 on the season so far. San Francisco is tied with the San Diego Padres who are looking like a better team already into the early part of the season in 2010.
The sputtering offense did just that for the Phillies last night. The team couldn’t produce any more than 1 run last night and it led to Roy Halladay’s first loss in the Phillies pinstripes. Halladay still leads the starting pitching staff with a 4-1 record with a 1.80 ERA for the team. Moyer brings his 2-1 with a 5.00 ERA record into tonight’s game.
The Phillies will face Todd Wellemeyer, who has an 0-3 record with an 8.16 ERA for the San Francisco Giants. This is the 11th home game for the Giants this year. Despite Wellemeyer’s ERA, the Giants have the best ERA of the MLB with a 2.68 ERA average for starting pitching.
Tomorrow’s game with Tim Lincecum pitching for the Giants is not a sellout and the Giants are offering some half price tickets to fill the stands for the afternoon matchup against Cole Hamels and the Phillies on Wednesday at 3:45 PM Philadelphia time.
