Phils/Dbacks Open Series

For full gameday, visit Phillies Nation.

Philadelphia Phillies (56-40) play at Arizona Diamondbacks (43-56).

Jamie Moyer (9-7, 5.65 ERA) starts vs. Jon Garland (5-9, 4.41 ERA).

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.
