Moyer becomes oldest pitcher to beat Yankees in 6-3 win

The Yankees had no answer for the ageless Jamie Moyer tonight, as he only went into the stretch twice through eight innings in a 6-3 win. The Yankees rallied off Brad Lidge in the ninth, but he struck out Jorge Posada, the tying run, to end the game.

Best of All: The bullpen. How about 5 2/3 innings of near perfect pitching from Boone Logan and Chad Gaudin? After Logan intentionally walked Jayson Werth in the fourth, the Yankees retired 16 straight Phillies.

Posada and Robinson Cano had solo homers off Moyer.

Worst of All: A.J. Burnett. He didn’t have it. And he hasn’t had it in his last three starts now. He only lasted 3 1/3 innings tonight, allowing all six runs on six hits and four walks. He allowed 10 runs over his two prior starts.

Coming Up: The decisive Game 3 is Thursday night. Same time, same place.
