Phillies vs. Mets
4:05 PM at Citizens Bank Park
Jamie Moyer will take the mound tonight against the Mets for his first back to back start since August. After losing his rotation spot to Pedro Martinez, Moyer has been somewhat forgotten about sans a couple of rain delay fill ins. As J.A. Happ’s injury still lingers, listed as day-to-day, Moyer will get his second start this week.
Moyer looked good in Houston, only giving up two runs off three hits through six frames. It was vintage Jamie, something we haven’t seen much this season. He took the ND in the loss.
The Mets will throw righty Mike Pelfrey (10-10, 4.83 ERA), who threw eight great innings against the lackluster Cubbies last week. In that game he struck out five, giving up one earned on five hits. Pelfrey got the win in his last outing against the Phillies on August 21.
It’s still unknown when Phillies fans will get to see Lidge again. “We’re definitely going to get Lidge back out there,” Manuel said. “I want to just give him time to settle down from a mental state and (work on) his command.” (ESPN)
Fun Phact – Sometimes Mike Pelfrey pitches with a mouthpiece as he was hit with a ball in college.
