Don't pin this one on Jamie Moyer.
He did his job.
He pitched beautifully through six innings last night in a 5-2 loss to the A's at McAfee Coliseum. He just got no run support, which has been a trend in the Phillies' six-game losing streak. The Phillies have the worst record in baseball since they swept the Braves in Atlanta a couple weeks ago.
"We've got guys not hitting," Charlie Manuel said. "I mean swinging bad. Swinging at balls in the dirt. Chasing balls over their heads. It looks like they've never seen a baseball. Really. They can go back to square one and think about what they've always done. And that's be aggressive, but at the same time be patient enough to get good balls to hit. That right there is how we're going to come out of it."
