Notes From The Phillies’ 6-2 Win Over San Francisco

leewinssfThe Philadelphia Phillies snapped their two-game losing streak on Monday night, taking down the San Francisco Giants 5-2. Their record improves to 15-18.

  • Cliff Lee pitched an excellent game tonight, allowing just two runs over eight innings. Lee worked quickly throughout the night. He didn’t walk a batter, and forced the San Francisco hitters into three double-plays.
  • Lee did have some trouble against former Phillie Hunter Pence. Pence went 3-3 against his former teammate with a solo home run and a double.
  • Michael Young gave the Phillies the early lead with a two-run double in the second inning. Young’s hit came with the bases loaded and two outs. The veteran third baseman also picked up two more hits later in the game.
  • Delmon Young drew a walk in the first inning, and drove in the team’s fourth run with a sacrifice fly in the fifth inning.
  • Domonic Brown launched his sixth homer of the year, a solo shot off in the fifth inning. Brown grounded out with the bases loaded in the first inning.
  • Jimmy Rollins had another rough night at the plate, finishing 0-4. His average has fallen to .236. He did however manage to drive in an insurance run in the ninth inning with a sacrifice fly.
  • John Mayberry got another start over Ben Revere in centerfield. Revere would enter the game as a defensive replacement.
  • Freddy Galvis had a nice at-bat in the ninth inning, picking up a double after seeing seven pitches.
  • Jonathan Papelbon pitched a scoreless ninth inning.

Final Thoughts

The Phillies got their west coast trip started off on the right foot with a solid win on Monday night.

Cliff Lee set the tone for the series by pitching a gem, and the offense supported him properly with a solid performance against San Francisco’s Madison Bumgarner. Bumgarner was a little wild in this game, and the lineup was patient enough to take advantage of him and tag him for five runs.

  • Nice Team Win over the Giants who have won 8 Games in a Row coming into the Series Opener.. Phils need to build on this Victory and have a tough 12 Game Stretch against some Teams playing good ball (Gaints,Diamondbacks,Indians and Reds) — They need a good 8-4 Stretch of Play to build some Confidence that they can beat some Good Teams
