Moyer roughed up in 12-2 blowout

Another Interleague game, another embarrassing loss. Last night's 12-2 debacle has the Phillies at 1-3 in Interleague Play this year, all against Boston.

Jamie Moyer, who's been solid this year, was horrendous. He allowed nine runs on nine hits in just one inning pitched. He allowed six doubles and one home run in his one inning of work.

The Phillies offense was terrible again, not that it mattered after the BoSox put an immediate nine spot on the board. The Phils were 1-10 with runners in scoring position. Jayson Werth hopes his 3-4 night will get him turned around. The Phillies need to turn themselves around in a hurry.

They are reaching a point where this isn't just a slump anymore. They are not a good team gone cold, they have just been flat out a bad team. The transition they've undergone is amazing, but this "slump" is nearly a month long now.

Now in third place, the Phillies five straight series against AL opponents: Boston, New York, Minnesota, Cleveland and Toronto. They will be in worse shape than third when that stretch ends if they don't figure something out quickly.
