Happy July 4th!!!
Did Cliff Lee win a game yet? Is he hurt?
It is basically the story of the first half. We all know that Cliff Lee has not been the Lee we saw last season. Phillies have been 7-1 since 2004 on July 4th including two walk offs against the Mets.
Cliff Lee and Chris Young were throwing zeros until the fourth inning. Scott Hairston put the Mets ahead with a solo homer in the fourth, lining an 0-2 pitch over the left-field wall. David Wright drove in the run with a bloop single in the 5th. Mets had a 2-0 lead.
Cliff Lee gave up two runs on seven hits, while striking out nine and walking one in eight innings, which is very-Lee like outings.
It actually only took six innings to finally have something cooking for the Phillies. Juan Pierre led off the seventh the Phillies' third hit, a single to center, and Utley followed with a laser two-run home run down the rightfield line also known as Utley's corner. It was the second homer for Utley, who returne...
BEST OF MAXIM
AROUND THE WEB
It’s about damn time.
Cliff Lee finally (finally!) got his first victory of the season, striking out nine over eight innings in the Phillies 9-2 win.
Chase Utley and Carlos Ruiz hit back to back homers in the seventh. Ty Wigginton also went yard.
But this was about Cliff and his first win.
Even with the victory, the Phillies remain 12 out in the east. You’ve gotta be happy...
On the day that celebrates our nation's Deceleration of Independence, Cliff Lee finally won his first game of the 2012 season, thus shaking the shackles that bind him. Congrats Cliff! You and your teammates should pop some bubbly in the clubhouse, because you won't be doing it in October.
Cliff Lee and the Philadelphia Phillies can breathe easier. Lee won for the first time since last September and the Phillies stopped a six-game losing streak with a 9-2 victory over the New York Mets in a matinee Independence Day game at Citi Field. Lee held New York to two runs on seven hits in eight innings; he struck out nine and walked one. "Today was hot and he did...
This season has been an excellent case study in valuing hitters over pitchers on draft day. None of the most consistent starters for the past three to five seasons have been themselves. Cliff Lee is one of those starters. Lee has already missed some time due to an oblique problem back in April and aside from that has been cheated in run support from the powerless Phillies. He has...

The Phillies are 10 games under .500 for the first time since June of 2002. Damn. There's not much to say besides the Phillies need a freaking miracle to head to the postseason, but if they keep playing this way they may just have to give up and become sellers. After being destroyed by the Mets last night, the Phillies will look to snap their six-game losing streak with Cliff...

By Dave BuscemaThe Sports Xchange NEW YORK -- For six innings, it looked like the Philadelphia Phillies would face another humbling step backward and ace Cliff Lee would continue to turn heads around the league by remaining winless. But Chase Utley continued to prove he's getting healthier and helped give the Phillies a chance to do the same. Utley's one-out homer in...

The time for excuses is coming to a close. Chase Utley came off of the DL last week, and today, the Phillies have activated first baseman Ryan Howard.
Howard torn his Achilles tendon last October in game five of the NLDS against the Cardinals, and played six rehab games, tallying eight hits, two doubles, one homer, three walks, and three strikeouts.
