The Pajama Jamie Jam: Phillies 8, Braves 3

It might be hard to tell which Jamie Moyer we're going to get from night to night, but tonight was a vintage performance for the lefthander.

Moyer allowed just two runs (both unearned) over six innings, striking out four and allowing just four hits and two walks.  He kept the Braves hitters off balance all night with his classic mix of slow-slower-slowest stuff, in and out of the zone.  Impressively, he struck out rookie hotness Jason Heyward looking in the sixth inning.

After the absolute clinic the Phillies defenders put on on Wednesday night, tonight the gloves were just so-so, including two errors from Chase Utley.

But it's easy to overlook those things when you're scoring eight runs.  And the star of the offense tonight was shortstop Juan Castro, who was 3-for-5 with two runs scored.  The Phillies had 12 hits, 11 of them singles (Greg Dobbs contributed the only extra base hit of the night -- a double).

Braves second baseman Martin Prado was the offensive stand-out for the Braves tonight, collecting three hits to lead the team.

A satisfying end to an exciting series.  Two out of three on the road against a key rival = good stuff.

The Phillies head west to Phoenix for a three game weekend series against the Arizona Diamondbacks.
