Moyer outduels Maddux: skid ends at four

You might think this was a boring 1-0 game in which neither team could hit. But it was fascinating to watch. Jamie Moyer and Greg Maddux were drafted the same year by the Chicago Cubs. They were teammates for three seasons. But they'd only faced each other once before - last year, when the Padres crushed the Phillies and Maddux picked up the win.

Moyer outduels Maddux: skid ends at four

You might think this was a boring 1-0 game in which neither team could hit. But it was fascinating to watch. Jamie Moyer and Greg Maddux were drafted the same year by the Chicago Cubs. They were teammates for three seasons. But they'd only faced each other once before - last year, when the Padres crushed the Phillies and Maddux picked up the win.

Tonight, both were spectacular. Moyer pitched seven scoreless, running his streak of games allowing three or fewer runs to an amazing 13. His performance snapped a four-game losing skid and kept the Phils a game behind the Mets in the National League East.

We'll have much more on Moyer-Maddux in the paper tomorrow. . .

Quick piece of news: The Phillies agreed to terms with 38th-round draft pick Jarred Cosart an hour before tonight's midnight deadline to sign picks.

It doesn't look like they were able to reach an agreement with Clearwater Central Catholic ace Ryan Weber, who will likely spend a couple years at St. Pete junior college.
