2008 Topps #173 Jamie Moyer

Phillies 11, Blue Jays 2
Game 73 - Sunday Afternoon, June 27th in Philadelphia

On a steamy afternoon in Philadelphia, the Phillies pounded the Blue Jays to win the series and end Interleague play for the year. Jamie Moyer won his 267th career game while becoming the 40th pitcher in Major League to log 4,000 innings pitched. His only blemish on the day was a 3rd inning home run allowed to Vernon Wells, giving him sole possession of first place on the all-time home runs allowed list with 506. He allowed 6 hits while striking out 7. His ERA so far this season is 4.30, but it drops to 3.49 if you throw out his disastrous start against the Red Sox. It was also his 9th win of the season, tying him for the team lead with Roy Halladay.

Jimmy Rollins, Shane Victorino and Ben Francisco each had 3 hits on the day. The Phils scored all 11 of their runs without the benefit of a home run, and their biggest hit was a 2-run double in the 2nd by Dane Sardinha. They added 4 unearned runs in the 7th when the Blue Jays decided to start throwing the ball around the field, committing 3 errors in the process.

Here's hoping they save a few hits and runs for Cincinnati!
