Baseball's oldest player, 47-year-old left-hander Jamie Moyer, will try for his 259th win on "turn back the clock night" tonight when the Phillies continue their series with the winless Astros beginning at 7:05 ET.
Preview: Right-hander Felipe Paulino counters for Houston. Lineups are posted: Brian Schneider does the catching. The
Phillies snapped a four-game losing streak to the 'Stros in yesterday's
16-hit slaying. After four, the Phils lead all MLB teams in runs scored
(32), batting average (.344), slugging percentage (.536), on-base
percentage (.440), extra-base hits (20) and walks (26).
Table-setters Jimmy Rollins (7-15, 6 BB) and Placido Polanco (11-19)
have led the charge; Polly is the first Phillies player with more than
10 hits at this point of a season since Johnny Moore had 11 in 1935, according to the press notes.
The Phils and Astros will wear uniforms similar to those worn during
the 1965 season tonight. (Dick Allen sporting '65 attire).
