Cliff Lee received another no-decision tonight in a back-and-forth game between the Phillies and Reds. Both teams battled for a lead throughout the final three innings, but the Reds would come out victorious.  The Phillies put up a run on the board in the first inning; Ryan Howard singled to deep right to score Jimmy Rollins. That's the only scoring that went on for seven innings. Cliff Lee was absolutely dominating the Reds' lineup tonight, only seeing trouble in the sixth. The bases were loaded with nobody out when Kevin Frandsen made a beautiful heads-up play, gunning the runner out at home, protecting the 1-0 lead. Cliff Lee then got Jay Bruce to ground into a double play, avoiding a tied ballgame. Until... Scott Rolen doubled, Todd Frazier walked, then Ryan Hanigan singled to center, scoring Rolen. Later, Frazier scored on a sacrifice fly from Zack Cozart. Hanigan scored on a bloop single to left from Drew Stubbs, and that would be it for Clifton Phifer Lee. B.J. Rosenberg
