Final: Mets 3, Phillies 8. WP: Cliff Lee (2-0, 1.08 ERA) LP: Dillon Gee (0-2, 7.71 ERA) Cliff Lee didn't disappoint yet again this evening.  He lasted eight and two-thirds innings, allowing just three runs, two of them earned, on eight hits.  He walked none, and struck out a total of six batters.  He now has two of the three total wins thus far in 2013 for the Phillies. We've been waiting for the Phillies' offense to wake up, and it surely did tonight and perhaps exceeded our expectations.  Especially in the bottom of the third when Ryan Howard, Michael Young and John Mayberry all homered against New York's Dillon Gee for their first home runs of the season respectively.   Michael Young was a double-shy of the cycle tonight, batting 3-4 with two runs scored and two runs-batted-in.  His once sub-.200 batting average is now at .345 for the season.  Even Cliff Lee helped his own cause tonight in the bottom of the second, extending the Phillies' lead to 3-0 on a RBI-single that skidded past the pitcher's mound and into center field. Kyle Kendrick (0-1) will get the nod Wednesday evening in the rubber-match of this three-game series against the New York Mets.  He will oppose RHP Jeremy Hefner (0-1), who is (1-1) with a 15.95 ERA in 7.1 career innings pitched against the Phillies.
