Found June 07, 2013 on Philliedelphia:
The Phillies are above .500 for the first time since last season when they finished 81-80. With their win last night behind Tyler Cloyd, the Phillies also extended their winning streak to five games. Cloyd was solid, throwing 6 2/3 innings of scoreless ball. Although he walked five batters, he...

At age 34, Cliff Lee is as good (or better) than ever

There are two things that are certain when it comes to Cliff Lee this year—he is having a monster season so far, and he is not getting any younger. But he might just be getting better. I dug up some research on Lee, and tried to put what he has done both this season, and since re-joining the Phillies in 2011, into perspective. I found that age has made no difference in his output...

After failing twice in April, the Phillies (31-30) finally moved over the break-even...

Death By Twizzler: Cliff Lee Gets No Decision

You could blame the Phillies pitching, stinky offense or the sloppy defense for last night’s 4-5 loss to the Brewers.  Or you can join me in blaming the Twizzlers.  I do believe that red devil candy somehow sucked the mojo right out of Cliff Lee.  The fact that the evil licorice was handed to Lee by a young Brewers fan reinforces my theory: Then again, a few other factors may...

A sweep of the Marlins, a .500 record, and a sub-par team in their path. All of these things bode well for the Phillies going into tonight's contest against the Milwaukee Brewers. Riding a 4-game winning streak and finally sitting at an even record, Tyler Cloyd and his team looked...

About Last Night: Phillies off to right foot on key road trip

The Phillies got to Brewers starter Wily Peralta early with two runs in the first inning, another in the second and one more in the third and they tacked on one more in the fifth inning with a Delmon Young solo home run to build a steady 5-0 lead. Tyler Cloyd was efficient and composed in picking up his second victory, evening his record...
