Moyer, Oldest Pitcher To Beat Yanks

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.
