If history holds, tonight's Phillies-Nationals game will be even lower-scoring than last night's 2-1 result. The Phils have yet to dent Washington starter Tim Redding in 13 1/3 innings this year, stretched across two victories. (Redding's ERA against everyone else: 4.45.) He's 4-2, 2.34 in nine career starts against the Phils, though one of the losses was the NL East-clinching game last Sept. 30.
The Phils counter with Jamie Moyer, who has gone 3-0, 2.31 against the Nationals since they moved from Montreal in 2005. Meanwhile, no news on the trade front--which at this point I think is good news. I don't want to see any of our prospects shipped for a situational lefty, and Gillick has done some of his best trade work in August anyway.
