New York Mets (5-2) vs. Philadelphia Phillies (2-5) Dillon Gee (0-1, 1.42) vs. Cliff Lee (1-0, 0.00) Time: 7:05 PM, Citizens Bank Park TV: CSN Weather: Partly Cloudy, 69 Media: Twitter and Facebook After last night’s debacle, it all falls on the reliable arm of Cliff Lee to stop the bleeding. Lee will do his best to give the bullpen a break, one that comes into tonight’s game with an ERA of 6.04, 24th in baseball. Their starting pitchers ERA is an MLB worst 7.68. The good news, Lee is 4-1 with a 2.09 ERA in eight career starts, striking out 56 in 56 innings. The Phillies could use the spark of yet another shutdown performance. And the fans can’t stomach another terrible outing. On the other end, Dillon Gee has been rocked by the Phillies in six career starts. He’s 3-3 with a 6.46 ERA. Both Charlie Manuel and Ruben Amaro addressed Roy Halladay and said they will give him as long a leash as he needs to correct himself. They’re showing confidence in their struggling former-ace, as they believe he’s earned that right. Plus, both Manuel and Amaro pushed the fact that we’re just two starts into what they hope is a successful 33 start run for Halladay. It’s early, still. LINEUP: Revere, Rollins, Utley, Howard, Young, Brown (LF), Mayberry (RF), Kratz, Lee Gameday Beer: Lagunitas Wilco Tango Foxtrot From what I gathered, Lagunitas tried to name this “Whiskey Tango Foxtrot” but weren’t allowed to use “whiskey” on the label, for some reason. So they changed it to match Wilco’s “Yankee Hotel Foxtrot”. GO PHILLIES!
