The "J"s Have It: Braves at Phillies, April 7, 2009.

New, 54 comments

Two nights after the party that crashed quickly, the Phillies resume the 2009 season, sending Ancient Former Mariner Jamie Moyer to the hill versus Atlanta Braves sophomore right hander Jair Jurrjens.

It's gonna be a frosty one in Philadelphia, with game time temperatures in the low to mid 40s expected.

Jurrjens gave the Phillies fits last year (.219/.279/.365) but the Phillies only managed a .231 BABIP against him, which implies that he was kind of lucky. Hopefully that balances out tonight.

Obviously not a "must-win" game, but against a much improved divisional opponent, it'd be a really, really nice game to win.
