From Dodgers.com, the scouting report on the starters:
Dodgers: Penny developed a finger blister in the first inning against Atlanta and the result was an ugly start when, because of a tired bullpen, the club needed him to eat innings. He originally was to start Saturday, but he was pushed back because of the blister, another red flag. That said, he was the most reliable starter on the club throughout the first half, which is why he made his second consecutive All-Star appearance. Of course, the skeptics haven't forgotten his second-half fade last year and are waiting to see which Penny shows up for the stretch drive this year.
Phillies: Moyer dropped his second consecutive decision, against Colorado on July 7. He lasted 5 2/3 innings and allowed five earned runs, his most since June 10. Over his past two starts, Moyer has allowed a combined nine runs on 17 hits. He is 3-3 lifetime against the Dodegrs, with a 3.62 ERA.
