Moyer done for season

It may finally be over for ageless Phillies pitcher Jamie Moyer. The 46-year-old junk-baller will have season-ending surgery after tearing muscles in his groin and lower abdomen.

Moyer was a solid if unspectacular 12-10 with a 4.94 ERA in 30 games, including 25 starts but lost his spot in the rotation to Pedro Martinez in August.

Moyer was injured on his final pitch in the seventh inning of the Phillies' 7-4 win over Houston on Tuesday night. He tore two tendons in his left groin and one in his lower abdominal region.
