Coming off of a 1-3 series loss against the Houston Astros, the worst team in baseball, the Phillies enter New York with the intent of getting back the giddy-up they had in the beginning of September. After being completely eliminated from contention of the NL Eastern Division title yesterday, the Phillies will enter the final 15 games of their season where they will face all of their division rivals. Tonight, Cliff Lee (5-7, 3.36 ERA) will take the hill in an effort to get a good start to this final stretch. Opposing him and the Phillies will be Cy Young candidate R.A. Dickey (18-5, 2.68 ERA). Cliff Lee proved victorious in last start, on Wednesday against the Marlins. The left-hander won his third game in four starts as he allowed one unearned run on four hits over seven innings of baseball. Lee also struck out six and walked one. Over his last six starts (41 2/3 innings), Lee is 3-0 with a 1.73 ERA. It was against the Mets that Lee won his first game of the season, back on the Fourth
