In the scorching Arizona weather, the Phillies will send Jamie Moyer to the mound against the fourth place Diamondbacks, managed by the one-time Phillie, A.J Hinch.

Moyer’s season has been a roller coaster, and it’s very unpredictable as to what kind of outing he’ll have.  Moyer tends to have success against the young, free-swinging clubs, like the D’backs.  In his last three games against Arizona, Moyer is 2-1 with a 3.74 ERA.  Also, Moyer has had more success on the road.  He is 5-2 with a 4.38 away from The Bank this season.

In July, Garland has thrown five consecutive quality starts, posting a 2.73 earned run average in the month.  The problem is that he lacks run support.  The Phillies have been a hot team winning 13 of 15, but they are also facing a hot pitcher.

Shiner BockYour Gameday Beer – Shiner Bock
Shiner Bock is brewed by the Spoetzl Brewery down home in Texas. Spoetzl sounds German, but this beer is a bit lighter than the traditional bock. It has a dark carmel color, yet the flavor is not that deep nor complex. Scott Franzke suggests it. It goes well with gamey meats so try some venison tonight. – By Brian
