Jamie Moyer’s best start of 2009 happened to result in win No. 250 of his career. Moyer surrendered just three hits and a run in six innings, leading the Phillies to a 4-2 win and series sweep over the Nationals.
Moyer was his old self, keeping the Nationals off the bases and off balance all day. He was only nicked by a Josh Willingham home run. The slugger was hot, homering later off Clay Condrey. But Ryan Madson and Brad Lidge (another 1-2-3 save) closed the door for the Phils.
Ryan Howard continued his strong display with a big triple, and Raul Ibanez also knocked a three-bagger. Chase Utley added two hits. Chris Coste homered in his first at bat since last Sunday.
This one was all about Moyer, however, returning to form with a landmark victory.
