He was 10-0 lifetime versus Florida before last night’s game.
Whether it was simply the law of averages catching up or a 45-year-old pitcher struggling on a hot night, Moyer lost to the Marlins 8-2 Tuesday after having won all of his previous 10 starts against the Marlins.
“It was bound to happen,” Moyer said. “The way I look at it, I beat myself tonight.”
And for the Marlins – who beat Moyer for the first time in four starts this season – their win in front of a sold-out crowd of 44,896 at Citizens Bank Park couldn’t have come at a better time.
Backed by Josh Johnson’s strong start and Jeremy Hermida’s four RBI, the Marlins started an important road trip by moving to within 11/2 games of first-place Philadelphia in the National League East.
It is simply amazing Florida is contending this year. I would have sworn they would lose 90 at least.
As for Moyer, some pitchers have certain team’s numbers. Tom Seaver used to clobber the San Diego Padres, on the other hand Al Oliver used to clobber Seaver. As Moyer said, the Marlins were bound to beat him eventually.
