From the official Philadelphia Phillies press release announcing the acquisition of reliever Scott Eyre from the Cubs in exchange for minor league righty Brian Schlitter:

Eyre, 36, had appeared in only 19 games for the Cubs this season due to two separate stints on the disabled list for left elbow inflammation and a strained left groin. He was 2-0 with a 7.15 ERA with 14 strikeouts in 11.1 innings (11.1 SO/9.0 IP). His first 14 appearances of the season were scoreless (9.0 IP). Against the National League this season, Eyre is 2-0 with a 3.24 ERA in 14 games. Six of the nine earned runs he has allowed this year have come against American League teams.
So now you know.
