Howard becomes fastest player to hit 200 homers

BY foxsports • July 17, 2009

The mismatches between Jamie Moyer and the Florida Marlins are becoming more one-sided.

Moyer allowed one hit in seven innings to continue his domination of Florida, Ryan Howard hit his 200th homer to sustain an unprecedented pace and the Philadelphia Phillies extended their winning streak to six games with a 4-0 victory Thursday night.

Ryan Madson and J.C. Romero pitched one perfect inning each to complete the one-hitter.

Moyer (9-6) limited Florida to two baserunners and departed after throwing 94 pitches. The 46-year-old left-hander has won all eight of his career starts in Miami, and he's 13-2 overall against the young, free-swinging Marlins.
