The Phillies hope to avoid an 0-4 start for the second straight season tonight when they begin a three-game set with Florida. Pitchers Jamie Moyer and Sergio Mitre tango.
Summary: Moyer, who went 5-2 with a 4.03 ERA in eight starts for the Phillies last season, needs eight more strikeouts to reach 2,000. Tonight begins his 21st Major League season. The Souderton, Pa. native dominated the Marlins and won all three of his starts against them in 2006. Sergio Mitre, who missed most of last season with shoulder problems, counters for the Fish. The right-hander went 1-5 with a 5.71 ERA in '06. The Phillies offense looks to improve with RISP after going 5-28 against the Braves. New acquisition Francisco Rosario joins the roster tonight.
