Eaton hopes to guide Phillies past Cardinals

Jun 23, 2007 - 1:16 PM Philadelphia (38-35) at St Louis (32-38) 1:10 pm EDT

ST. LOUIS (Ticker) - Adam Eaton hopes to follow in the same foot steps of teammate Jamie Moyer as the Philadelphia Phillies face the St. Louis Cardinals on Saturday.

The 44-year-old Moyer pitched six scoreless innings as the Phillies rolled to a 6-0 triumph in Friday's series opener.

Eaton (7-4, 5.33 ERA) goes in search of his fifth win in seven outings. In his last start, he allowed three runs and six hits in 6 1/3 innings in a no-decision vs. Detroit last Sunday.

The 29-year-old righthander has a 1-2 record in five lifetime starts against St. Louis, which fell to just 1-6 against the National League East with Friday's loss.

Adam Wainwright (5-6, 4.70) takes the ball for the defending World Series champion Cardinals. The righthander gave up five runs and nine in seven innings of a 5-3 loss to Kansas City on Monday.

Reigning NL MVP Ryan Howard continues to impress during the Phillies six-game road trip. The 27-year-old slugger is batting .470 (8-for-17) with seven RBI and two homers.
