Lights Out Lee

The Philadelphia Phillies' starting pitcher ,Cliff Lee, was the star of the show against the Braves. Lee Pitched 8 shut-out innings and then, Jonathon Papelbon took over and got the save while Lee got the win. The final score was 2-0 and both the runs scored by the Phils' came what I like to call the old-fashion way. They got a sacrifice fly and a fielder's choice that scored a run.

The fielder's choice was hit by Ben Revere who had a 1-5 day, and the sac' fly came from Chase Utley who hit 1-2 with a walk. As for the Braves they were only allowed 2 hits by Papelbon and Lee and they were singles by Justin Upton and Dan Uggla.

The Braves have won the series 2-1, but the Phillies ended it strong with a shut-out win. This is a much better game for the Phillies than before!
