Once again, Jamie Moyer left a game giving the Phillies little chance to win. And the offense did nothing, either.
Moyer was taken out in the fifth inning, in total surrendering seven earned runs on eight hits as part of a 9-2 loss to the Dodgers. While he cruised early in the game, Moyer was solved quickly by Dodger bats, and he allowed hit after hit, ending with a walk of shame and an ERA over 8.00, the highest in baseball.
The Phillies bats, meanwhile, did no favors. Jimmy Rollins and Raul Ibanez homered early and late in the game, but that was it. Thanks to Randy Wolf (7 IP, 1 ER, 3 H, 8 K) the Phillies were baffled all night. Ryan Howard struck out three times, while Shane Victorino went 0-for-5, ending his night as a .259 hitter.
