Jamie Moyer pitched seven scoreless innings, allowing two hits, and Greg Dobbs hit a three-run home run as the Phillies won their second straight over the Mets, 6-2 this afternoon at Shea Stadium.

They have now won their first series of the season over the Mets, and have guaranteed that they will at the very least gain one game in the NL East after this weekend. A win tonight against Johan Santana would give the Phillies a tie for first place.

More to come. . .

A few quick things before the start of game one:

1) Against righty Pedro Martinez, Charlie Manuel elected to start Matt Stairs in right field and Jayson Werth in left, keeping Pat Burrell on the bench. I'd assume Burrell would be the first bat off the bench and will start tonight against lefty Santana. He could also be availalbe as a defensive replacement late in games. I kid, I kid.

2) Got an injury update from assistant GM Ruben Amaro Jr. Geoff Jenkins will likely take batting practice when the Phillies return home tomorrow. He could be back within the next week, but Amaro said his quad injury will likely prevent him from being used in the field. He'll likely have a role as a pinch hitter for September.

3) Still no word on a starting pitcher for Tuesday's game against the Brewers. Both JA Happ and Kyle Kendrick said they haven't heard anything. Rich Dubee said he'd make up his mind by tomorrow.

4) Donovan McNabb looks sharp.
