All good things occurred for the Phillies Saturday in an 8-2 win over the Tigers.
Jamie Moyer went four innings, giving up a run on four hits and striking out five. JA Happ, meanwhile, gave up just two hits in his three innings and struck out seven. Scott Eyre gave up a run in an inning; Mike Koplove threw a perfect frame.
Needless to say, it’s looking like the crafty Chan Ho Park and the powerful JA Happ in the Fight For Fifth.
Ryan Howard and John Mayberry Jr. both struck three-run home runs in the win; Lou Marson and Geoff Jenkins added RBI. Currently, it’s looking as if Mayberry is still on pace for a potential roster spot.
