Moyer Sets 'Dubious' Record In Win

The only run Jamie Moyer surrendered tonight was a second inning solo shot from Russell Branyan. The home run was the 505th given up by Moyer in his career, which ties him for the most ever with Phillies great Robin Roberts. Like Roberts, Moyer hasn’t given up so many bombs because he’s a bad pitcher … it’s just that he’s been around so long.

“If you’re around long enough stuff like this happens,” Moyer said. “I always had a lot of respect for Robin.”

Indians manager Manny Acta was impressed with the 47-year-old.

“We didn’t take good swings off Moyer and he flat-out toyed with us, It’s amazing what he’s doing at his age at this level.”
