Brewers can't solve Moyer; Phils split series with 3-1 win
Let's face it--Jamie Moyer is older than dirt (well, older than most of the houses in Brookfield anyway).
When I heard that Moyer was getting the start, I assumed that the Brewers had seen him enough to hit his crazy junk...well, the old dog must still have something.
Moyer lasted 6 IP, surrendered 8 hits and 3 walks...but only one run--Ryan Braun driving in Rickie Weeks in the 3rd. But that was the only run for the Brewers Thursday.
Jeff Suppan had his best start of the season--no runs through the first 5 innings, and then only a solo home run to Jayson Werth in the 6th. Suppan left after 7 IP, having thrown 92 pitches (51 of them for strikes), and lowered his ERA for the season to 3.48. David Riske was called in to pitch the 8th, and surrendered a pair of runs on a Pat Burrell double.
Braun and Bill Hall each went 3-for-4 to make their BA's a bit more respectable--Braun is now hitting .270 on the year, while Hall sits at .202.
