Moyer Rocked In First

Jamie Moyer wishes he could have a mulligan. He got beat up for five runs in the first inning, which was all Florida needed in their 5-1 win over the Phillies. Jayson Werth’s homer in the ninth was the only offense the Phillies could muster.

Moyer (1-1, 7.50) settled in very well after the brutal first to finish his night off with 6 IP, 5 R/ER, 6 H, BB, 7 K. This is the second time this year a Moyer start was defined by one inning. Former Phillies Ronny Paulino hit a three-run shot to cap off the first.

Ricky Nolasco (1-0, 3.74) pitched a complete game for Florida, allowing a run on five hits, three walks, and four strike outs.

HR: Werth

WP: Nolasco (1-0). LP: Moyer (1-1)

    Note how Moyer allowed 10 runs in 12 innings of work. He has only allowed runs in 2 innings: the 3rd inning last Saturday against the Astros, and the 1st yesterday against the Marlins.
    Do you notice how ex-Phils always hit HRs against the Phillies?

    Yea it’s like extra motivation. I actually thing Brett Myers is gonna shut ’em out based off of that theme alone haha.

      lol, if Adam Eaton faced the Phillies last year, he would do the same thing.

      For some reason, Brett Myers was my lucky charm when I would go to a Phillies game and he would start. The Phils were 4-1 when I saw him start.
