Brett Myers pitched the Phils to another win over the Nationals. His complete-game shutout performance allowed for a series win. Now the Phils will try to sweep the Nationals out of Philly. The Phils can move to one game behind the Mets with a win tonight.
The Legend Continues: With his 11 wins, Jamie Moyer is the team’s top winner. He now has 241 for his career.
The Dobbs Split: Greg Dobbs is hitting .309 with all six of his homers against right-handed pitching.
In The Redd: Tim Redding was phenomenal against the Phillies his first two times against them, but the Phils figured him out July 30, scoring seven runs off him in four innings en route to an 8-5 loss.
Petey!: Pedro Feliz is in the starting lineup, seeing his first action since an injury derailed him in late July. He is paired in the lineup with his rhyming brother, Carlos Ruiz.
Phillies: Jamie Moyer (11-7) 3.64 ERA
Nationals: Tim Redding (8-8) 4.66 ERA

Your gamenight beer: A couple things I love — Belgian beer and amber beer. This is Bruegel Amber Ale, named after painter Pieter Bruegel, evidently. I’ll drink to art anyday of the week. Pair this with a shrimp salad.
