Phillies—Dodgers: Preview Game 31

Jamie Moyer will go for career win 250 once again tonight against the Los Angeles Dodgers. In Moyer’s first attempt for the milestone he was pounded by the Mets. Tonight, he opposes a former Phillies pitcher, Randy Wolf.

Wolf is off to a good start for the Dodgers in 2009, entering tonight’s game with a 1-1 record and a 2.95 ERA. The former fan favorite has also struck out batters 36 times and walked 14. He has allowed only three stolen bases this season, and, after last night, you can expect the Dodgers to be more careful when the Phillies get on base.

In Wolf’s only appearance against the Phillies, last year with San Diego, the lefty allowed two runs over six innings and struck out nine batters but failed to receive a decision.

The Phillies go into tonight’s game one half game behind the Mets for the division lead. The Mets lost to the Braves this afternoon in twelve innings.
