San Francisco Giants

The Phillies kicked off their seven-game road trip in style on Monday night in San Francisco, notching a 6-2 victory over the world champion Giants behind the arm of Cliff Lee and the bat of Michael Young. Lee sparkled in 8 innings, looking very much like the dominant starter we saw in early April. Young knocked in two runs, scored another and had three hits and an intentional walk.
CLIFTON DAZZLES AGAIN IN STOPPER ROLE
- As I pointed out in today’s Gameday, Lee had been dominant in two of three starts that have come after Doc disasters. Make that three of four. Monday night’s performance was vintage Cliff Lee. The lefthander worked quickly, was economical with his pitches and had elite command. Of the 102 pitches he threw, a remarkable 71 were strikes. His final line; 8 IP, 2 ER, 5 H, 6 K, 0 BB… and one line drive single.
- Not only did Lee only surrender 5 hits, he induced a trio of double play groundouts ...
BEST OF MAXIM
Last night didn’t go as planned for the San Francisco Giants. Cliff Lee and the Phillies pumped the brakes on the Giants six game winning streak.
Andrew Baggarly of CSNBayArea.com says it’s worth the Giants’ time to pick up the phone and inquire about a possible trade for Lee. It’s not likely that the Phillies will be able to keep pace with the Braves and Nationals, so they...
From the rumormongers, there is the tantalizing name on the Philadelphia Phillies of Cliff Lee. How many future stars will he net this time? TAL’S HANDY CAPS: POLL WELCOME, NEWCOMERS: This is my 14th poll and I will hone them over time, like my other postings. If you’re interested in checking out something different, my storyline articles–by design–represent a baseball...
That's more like it. It seems like it has been a while since the Phillies got that so-called complete game effort from the team, but last night in San Francisco they gave it. Cliff Lee was in command on the mound, Domonic Brown delivered the first McCovey Cove blast in Phillies history and the defense did not disappoint in the field for the most part. The result was a 6-2 victory...
We might only be in the first week of May, but the trade rumor mill has already begun to churn. On Monday night, after Philadelphia Phillies starter Cliff Lee spun his latest gem against the Giants, beat writer and CSN Bay Area correspondent Andrew Baggarly wrote that the Giants could potentially be suitors for the ace pitcher come trade deadline time. The Phillies are an aging team...
Don't look him directly in the eyes On paper, Cliff Lee vs. Madison Bumgarner seemed to be quite the pitching matchup. And, that's close to what we saw. Even though Bumgarner would go on to give up five runs, it did not feel like a large lead. Luckily for the...

It is officially gut-check time for this Phillies team. Roy Halladay is on the disabled list. They got demolished 14-2 by the lowly Marlins...
A day after a demoralizing 12-run loss at home, the Philadelphia Phillies delivered just the kind of well-rounded victory manager Charlie Manuel had been seeking.
Having Cliff Lee on the mound in San Francisco sure helped the cause.
Lee shut down the Giants once again with eight strong innings in a ballpark where he thrives, Michael Young hit a two-run double among his three hits...
The Phils’ offense return after being missing for two games as they support Cliff Lee’s good start by beating the Giants, 6-2.
The Phils tried to get on the scoreboard in the top of the first as they loaded up the bases, via singles by Michael Young and Ryan Howard, with M. Young stopping at second base, and a walk to Delmon Young, with both M. Young and Howard moving up a base...
After ending their weekend series at home against the Marlins with a 2-2 split and some bad news about Roy Halladay, the Phillies hit the road for a six-game road trip on the West Coast. The Phillies will visit the San Francisco Giants starting tonight to open a three-game set...

We’re only five-plus weeks into the season. Each team has at least 128 games left to play. It’s not too early, though, to talk about players who might be trade targets this summer, as teams fall out of contention. (Is it ever too early, really? This is what we dream up all day long, right?)
Today, we’re going to focus on players with no-trade clauses on teams that may very...
Madison Bumgarner isn't getting much run support, but the NL West-leading San Francisco Giants usually win when he takes the ball.
That's not happening for the Philadelphia Phillies when Cliff Lee does.
Bumgarner and the Giants try to extend their season-best winning streak to seven in Monday's night's series opener at AT&T Park, where Lee has a 20-inning scoreless...
