Jamie Moyer made history for the Philadelphia Philles last night

47-year old lefty starting pitcher Jamie Moyer became the oldest pitcher ever to throw a complete game shutout last night against the Atlanta Braves. He only gave up 2 hits without walking any hitters last night! Moyer was very aggressive as he had 1 three pitch inning last night and he threw 71 of his 105 pitches for strikes. The Phillies won the game 7-0 so there was never much of a thought of pulling Moyer from the game last night. He has started 6 games for the Phillies this season and he is 4-2 with a 4.38 ERA and a 1.08 WHIP. He has only walked 5 batters in 39 innings pitched so far this season. It appears that Moyer figures he only has so many bullets left in his gun so he is going to attack the strike zone. He now has 262 career wins in the major leagues and he can get to 300 if he keeps pitching well and can stay healthy.
