Cubs-Phillies: Chicago Looks to Bounce Back Against Phillies' Jamie Moyer

With just a few hours to recover from a rough beating at the hands of Cole Hamels, the Cubs need a win Sunday to turn the season's first road trip into a winning one.

After sweeping the Pirates, the Cubs have been limited to just four runs, while Ted Lilly and Rich Hill struggled in their outings at Citizens Bank Park. The two nights in Philly have not been pleasant for the visitors.

Sunday, the Cubs have their first day game since Monday's PNC home opener. Jason Marquis will face veteran Jamie Moyer, who was a Cub before color TV was invented.

Moyer throws five pitches, each one is slower than the last. His fastballs won't blow your doors off, that's for sure. But at this point, it's like golf. If Jamie keeps his fastball's top speed below his age, people buy him drinks after the game.

The Cubs did poorly against Hamels' straight change today, but Moyer's isn't truly straight, like Hamels'. In terms of effectiveness and outcomes, Moyer does his damage with it, too.
