TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Jamie Moyer bolstered his bid to win Philadelphia's fifth starter spot by giving up one hit over 6 2-3 innings in the Phillies' 3-0 victory over the New York Yankees on Friday night.
The 47-year-old left-hander is competing with Kyle Kendrick, who has a 1.37 ERA in 19 2-3 innings over five games. Moyer struck out six and hit one batter with a pitch.
Phil Hughes, one day after becoming the Yankees' No. 5 starter, allowed one run and two hits in three-plus innings. The 23-year-old struck out five and walked four during a 71-pitch outing.
Yankees star Alex Rodriguez went 0 for 3. His meeting Friday with federal investigators probing a Canadian doctor was delayed, and the slugger remained at spring training rather than traveling to Buffalo.
