Cincinnati Reds (41-42) face the Philadelphia Phillies (44-38)

Today's matchup: Micah Owings (6-8, 4.48 ERA) vs. Jamie Moyer (7-6, 5.72 ERA)

Jamie Moyer takes the hill tonight against the Reds. In his last three starts, Moyer is 3-0 with a 3.11 earned run average. Moyer faced the Reds earlier this season and gave up three runs over six innings.

Micah Owings will start for Cincinnati. He is 2-1 with a 4.13 ERA in his career against the Phillies. He was rocked in his last start against the Phillies; five earned runs in three innings. Chase Utley is 5-for-10 with a home run and Greg Dobbs has two career home runs against Owings.

The Phillies have scored only six runs since their 22 run outburst. With Moyer on the mound, three runs may not cut it. They have a good chance against Owings, but run support is key for Moyer. With a win, the Phillies will take 3 of 4 from the Reds.

Tonight's lineup: Rollins (SS)/Victorino (CF)/ Utley (2B)/ Howard (1B)/ Werth (RF)/ Dobbs (LF)/ Feliz (3B) /Ruiz (C)/ Moyer (P)
