Cliff Lee goes the distance

Phil's up 1-0 in NLDS

This is why they got him from the long suffering Indians.

Cliff Lee threw a complete game against the Rockies scattering 6 hits with 5 strike outs giving up a meaningless run in the 9th inning with 2 outs leading Philadelphia to a 5-1 win over Colorado. After a shaky start he retired 16 in a row until a wind blown single in the 7th. He even got a hit and stole 2nd. My team MVP Jason Werth lead the offense going 2 for 3 with an RBI and 2 runs scored including a triple that I thought was going to be an inside the park HR.

The Dodgers beat the Cardinals 5-3 and the Evil Empire knocked of the Twinkees 7-2.
