Yeah, Cliff Lee gave up runs. No, it wasn’t the prettiest game you’ve ever seen. But, a win is a win, and the Phillies just keep on keepin’ on.
Behind seven strong from Cliff Lee, the Phillies stretched their lead in the National League to a ridiculous 11.5 games over both the Brewers and Diamondbacks following a 3-2, 10 inning victory over Milwaukee.
Prior to this series, the Brewers were the best team at home in the major leagues. Three games into this series, the Phillies are showing them who’s boss. What a spectacular showing by a resilient team on the road. Remember the Braves? They’re a mere 12 games back in the league/division. Twelve friggin’ games!
Hunter Pence and Placido Polanco helped Lee out with the offense, each hitting a solo homer. Each also tallied three hits on the night in the Phillies 94th victory of the season.
Lee struck out seven over seven, giving up six hits and walking two.
Tomorrow, they go for a four game sweep over the team that was now supposed to be the second best team in the NL.
Just keep enjoying what you’re seeing, folks. You may not EVER see this kind of baseball again.
