CLIFF CAN’T WIN

-Cliff Lee is STILL winless. Not sure how that’s possible, but it’s still the case as Lee was pulled after six innings. The Phillies started scoring, of course, in the seventh. Lee fanned seven and walked two, while giving up three runs on seven hits.

-Taking bets on when Cliff will win his first game…

-Other than Raul Valdes, who struggled in the ninth and had to be pulled with two outs, the bullpen did a fine job. Antonio Bastardo struck out one in one inning, getting the victory, while Jose Contreras fanned two in his inning of work. Jonathan Papelbon had to come on to finish it off after warming up a couple of times in the bullpen.

JIMMY, SHANE, and CHOOCH

-Before we get to how great the offense was over the final three innings, they were pretty bad over the first six. Dillon Gee was pretty good, going 6 2/3 innings, allowing two runs on six hits.

-How awesome is Carlos Ruiz? The dude is locked in in a way I’ve never seen. His pinch-hit homer in the seventh tied the game and kicked off the string of nine runs over the final three frames.

-This was Jimmy Rollins finest game of the year. We’ve been waiting for this kind of game from him and he delivered, going 3-for-5 with a three-run jack in the six-run ninth inning. It was an absolute bomb for his second homer of the season.  Let’s hope he can get on a hot streak here. When he’s firing on all cylinders, it usually means the Phillies are as a whole.When Jimmy

-Shane Victorino went 1-for-4, but knocked in three runs on a sac fly and a two-run single.

-Ty Wigginton went yard and is giving the Phillies some power where it has been lacking. He’s been a fine pickup. And he’s also hot, going 6-for-11 in the Mets series.
