Philadelphia Phillies Starting Pitcher, Cliff Lee will oppose St. Louis Starter Jake Westbrook tonight in the first of two games between the Phillies and Cardinals.

Cliff Lee strikes out 10 in win

The Phillies ended their brief losing streak in New York last night with great pitching from Cliff Lee and timely home runs. Lee went 8 innings, striking out 10 for the Phillies sixth win over the Mets this year. Home runs by Rollins and Brown provided enough offense to get the Phillies back on winning ways.The Phillies entered the game 4 behind St.Louis for the final Wild-Card spot need a sweep in New York and plenty of help. St. Louis has 8 games remaining against the Astros, the worst in baseball. GO ASTROS!

You gotta believe!!! Philly Sports World polling shows that 60% believe that the Phillies can make the post season. If the Phillies can continue with strong pitching and timely hitting, why not? The Astros series was a downer and has made the task certainly more difficult, but who would have thought just 6 weeks ago we’d have a shot? 60% believe and they are having FUN watching the last month aren’t they!Similar Posts:

Lee, Phillies deny Dickey his 19th victory

NEW YORK - There have been few highlights for the New York Mets during the stretch run of another disappointing season, except for R.A.

Cliff Gets Cheers Bar The Wins

Yesterday, Cliff Lee gave the line 8 IP, 1 ER, 8 baserunners, 10 Ks to move his record to 6-7 in 190 innings.  That’s to go with a 3.27 ERA and a 1.13 WHIP.  If you had 7 wins as his over/under for the year with a full season of starts and without him being traded midseason to the Astros, you might win yourself a lot of money.  If you doubled down with the bet, Roy Halladay’s...
