Philadelphia Phillies (32-30) at New York Yankees (41-23)

Jamie Moyer, LHP (6-6, 5.03 ERA) vs. A.J Burnett, RHP (6-3, 3.86 ERA)

Time: 7:05, Yankee Stadium
Weather: Thunderstorms, 75
TV: Comcast Sportsnet/ ESPN
Twitter: @philliesnation

The losing ways continue.  With last night’s 8-3 loss to the Yankees, the Phillies dropped to 8-17 in their last 25 games.  Not only is that the second worst record in the majors, but they’ve only averaged 2.6 runs per game.

The offense has been pathetic, but the Phillies are still more than capable of putting up crooked numbers, especially at Yankee Stadium.  Just 314 down the right field line, the Phillies left-handed power bats could use a short-porch, like Mark Teixeria’s homer last night.

The Phillies will have to get to A.J Burnett in order to for them to do anything offensively.  Burnett is 5-8 with a 4.75 ERA in his career against the Phillies.  In the 2009 World Series, he went 1-1; he was terrific in his 3-1 victory, but was lit up in his 8-6 loss.

Even if the Phillies can put up big numbers, Jamie Moyer will have to keep the Yankees’ bats under wraps.  Moyer is coming off a start in which he could not get an out in the second inning.   Against the Yankees, Moyer is 4-3 with a 5.37 ERA in his career.

Tonight’s Lineup:Victorino (CF), Polanco (3B), Utley (2B), Howard (1B), Werth (RF), Ibanez (LF), Dobbs (DH), Schneider (C), Valdez (SS), Moyer P.

Your gameday beer: In the spirit of the Yankees’ biggest rivals, here’s Harpoon Celtic Ale from the Harpoon Brewery. And in the spirit of the Irish, this beer is a dry but complex drink — hints of toffee and various spices make this a good catch. And if you’re gonna eat Irish with it, go with bangers and mash. It’s St. Paddy’s Day … in June! – By Tim

Go Phillies!

    Although I guess you’d have to say the odds aren’t in his favor, what Woody said is true, you just never know…..

    I feel at this point were beyond a “slump”. I don’t even remember what winning a series feels like.

    if moyer gets through the first inning clean, he will be fine. 3 runs 7 innings.

    Jamie has been a good game-bad game pitcher lately. Lets hope for the former. We need a big win badly.

    Also, I’m worried that Chooch may be out for a while with that ankle.

    good catch shaney. check swisher for roids. he has to be on them. so average to hit long balls.

    thats what im talking about. except the pitch to roids swisher, jaime looked good. he will go 7 tonight. maybe giving up 3. the question is can we score 3 or more.

    The Twins are actually pretty good.

    Jeff, I don’t think the Phillies would bring up Brown and use up one of his options just to DH. Just my own personal opinion.

    come on jamie ! — as you guys know , all depends on the ump. Last time out i knew moyer was in trouble when he didn’t get the strike on the black. The ump had a small strike zone that night. Tonite you saw him get the corner call on texciara ( spell check ). We need a chance to win this series starting tonite. Lets win tonite , tomorrow , and jumpstart this thing ! Starting tonite we go 60 and 40 the rest of the way ! ———— holy shit canoe just hit that to manhatten ———at least no one was on.

    For phils fans in NYC, NY1′s sports show has a pretty good interview with Doug Glanville. I mixed the audio and got to mic him up. Nice guy. Strangely, I was more nervous meeting Glanville than I was meeting Darryl Strawberry two years ago.

    And BREAK OUT THE BATS! 6-1 Go phils!!
