The Phils continue their road to the playoffs by traveling to Pittsburgh this weekend. J.D Durbin gets the nod tonight in favor of the much-maligned and now injured Adam Eaton. He faces off against lefty Tom Gorzelanny who has been on fire this month, winning two games (including a complete game) while keeping a 1.13 ERA. Jamie Moyer (4-0 in his last 5 starts) and Kyle Loshe (undefeated as a Phillie) also take to the hill for the Phillies. The Pirates lineup scored 22 runs in three games against the Mets this past week, but the team was only able to manage a single win in the series. Also look for Shane Victorino to make his return to the Phillies bench. He won’t play however, he had a minor setback in his rehab assignment earlier this week.
