After a 5-1 road trip and a day off, the Phillies get back to business, and a big way: The second-place Marlins come in for a battle at the top.
Moyer The Magnificent: Jamie Moyer is 10-0 against the Marlins, in 10 starts. This season he’s beaten them three times.
Just Joshing: The Phils, however, face Josh Johnson, who took the Phils to the cleaners last time he faced them. He gave up just two runs in 6.2 innings, a win for the Fish. The Marlins are 4-0 in Johnson’s starts.
The Jake: If one Marlins hitter can beat Moyer, it’s Mike Jacobs. The left-handed hitter is .391 with five homers and 10 RBI against Moyer for his career, including two homers this year.
Phillies: Jamie Moyer (10-6) 3.79 ERA
Marlins: Josh Johnson (1-0) 4.18 ERA
Gametime: 7:05 p.m. EST

Your gamenight beer: The Phils are back home, and I’m going home too â€” for the beer selection, that is. Here is Rowhouse Red from the Philadelphia Brewing Co, This farmhouse ale has a familiar and easy taste. Which makes sense. A rowhome is familiar, it’s cozy, it’s home. Those of us who grew up in a rowhome (Port Richmond, represent!) would understand.
