Moyer, Oldest Pitcher To Beat Yanks


AP Sports Writer

NEW YORK (AP) – Jamie Moyer worked eight sharp innings to become

the oldest pitcher to beat the Yankees, and the 47-year-old lefty

bounced back from the worst start of his career to pitch the

Philadelphia Phillies past New York 6-3 Wednesday night.

Shane Victorino hit a bases-loaded triple, and Ryan Howard and

Jayson Werth hit the Phillies' first back-to-back homers of the

season to end the Yankees' nine-game home winning streak.

Philadelphia roughed up A.J. Burnett (6-5) for only its ninth

win in 26 games, a stretch that has dropped them into third place

in the NL East.

On Thursday, the Phillies will face Andy Pettitte in the finale

of the three-game set. Pettitte won the clincher in last year's

World Series between the two teams.
