Thanks Cliff

27 May

Just wanted to quickly mention how important Cliff Lee‘s start was yesterday to the Phillies.

His line wasn’t the greatest (10 hits, 4 Earned Runs, 1 Walk, 8 Strikeouts) but what was huge, was that he was able to go so deep into the game. Cliff threw eight innings on a really hot afternoon and kept the all of the pitchers who threw in the 19 inning marathon from the night before out of the game. Jose Contreras pitched the ninth after being activated earlier in the day.  This was a huge lift for the bullpen that was very active in the series with the Reds.

Cliff still hasn’t seemed to have locked in on his release point just yet, but he has pitched well enough to win in all but two outings.

    What impressed me yesterday about Lee is that he helped himself by that double in the bottom of the 6th to gain 2 RBI’s then got another hit in the seventh to gain another RBI.
