Citizens Bank Park will be sold out again today as the Philadelphia
Phillies (8-9) host the rival New York Mets (9-6). Jamie Moyer (1-0
5.52) will toe the rubber for the Phillies while Oliver Perez (1-0
3.38) counters for the Mets. For the second night in a row both teams
will start Southpaws.
The Phillies lost the opener to the Mets last night 6-4 as Johan
Santana threw 7 solid innings and David Wright missed the cycle by a
homerun. The Phillies defense and another wrong call concerning Jose
Reyes also helped sink the Phils.
Other quick hits:
- Jamie Moyer is 7-3 with a 2.87 ERA against the Mets in his career.
- Every pitcher in the Phillies bullpen has an ERA under 3.00 against
the Mets in their career except Rudy Seanez 3.80 and Clay Condrey 3.12.
- Pat Burrell leads all active players in career homeruns against New York with 41.
- Jayson Werth is a career .339 hitter versus the Mets.
