Part II: Gamethread, 7/18/08

Now tied for first place with the scalding hot Mets and a game and a half ahead of third-place Florida, the Phillies begin a six-game stretch of unusual importance for July that will take them through Miami and New York. Neither starter should lack for confidence tonight: Jamie Moyer has nine career wins in nine starts facing the Marlins, while Ricky Nolasco already has beaten the Phils twice this year and is 3-1, 2.28 against them for his career. Florida has won Nolasco's last seven starts.
