Cliff Lee of the Philadelphia Phillies fired off 102 bullets after 10 shutout innings, but there was no run support behind him. Was the offense repairable in the off-season? Was there something that could have been done?

Chooch Completes The 6th-Inning DP
He escaped a leadoff 3-bagger by sandwiching a lineout and a groundout around a called 3rd strike in the 2nd. He also wiggled out of 1st-and-3rd, one-retired trouble with an unusual double play in the 6th. There was a strikeout, a toss to 2nd and an immediate return throw home for the frame-ending tag. Joining him on the top floor, Chooch Ruiz held onto the ball after being bowled over at the dish for that out. Also, Juan Pierre and Shane Victorino had 2-hit nights, while Jimmy Rollins had the lone RBI. Pierre tripled, walked and found 3rd base to his liking.

Last night during the Phillies-Giants game, Cliff Lee threw ten scoreless innings for the Phillies. He allowed seven hits, struck out seven, and didn't walk a batter. Of course, as soon as Lee was pulled for the beginning of the eleventh inning, the Phillies lost the game. It's very rare to see a pitcher throw ten innings in a game, and had me wondering when the last time...

The term “pitchers duel” has always been a little funny – hard to punctuate – to me. There’s so much that goes into an at-bat, an inning, a game, that it’s really hard to know whether a low-scoring game is the result of great pitching, terrible hitting, or a spectacular conflagration of both. The number of times the Giants had to “tip their cap” to some middle...
