Exclusive club

45-year old Phillies pitcher Jamie Moyer has beaten every other team in the majors at least once. (Philly Inquirer)

The beneficiary of the offensive explosion was - you guessed it - Jamie Moyer, who beat the Rockies for the first time in his career.

The 45-year-old Moyer, the oldest player in major-league knickers, has now beaten all 30 teams in the majors. He is the sixth pitcher to do so, joining Kevin Brown, Al Leiter, Terry Mulholland, Woody Williams and Curt Schilling.

His reaction? "I guess I've been around a long time."

Moyer is now 5-3 and 235-181 in his career. The Phils have scored 11, 10, 12 and 20 runs, respectively, in his last four wins. If he keeps getting that kind of support, he may pitch until he's 55.
