Left-handers Jamie Moyer (3-3, 4.89) and Matt Chico (0-5, 6.07) square off in the series finale between the Phillies and Nationals tonight.
Preview: The Phils have dropped eight of their last 14 and have scored a below-average number of runs during that span. They could really use this one – a series win on the road against a weaker opponent. A loss tonight might constitute a "funk," albeit a small one. The Phils haven’t seen Chico much overall. Howard is 1-for-8 off him; Utley is 4-for-7 with a home run. Utley comes into the game with seven home runs against left-handed pitching, most in baseball. This would be a nice time to give Howard a break, or save him for the right-handed bullpen. [Live Boxscore]
