Notes From The Phillies’ 7-4 Loss To San Francisco

Cliff LeeThe Philadelphia Phillies lost their second straight game on Monday night, falling to the Giants 7-4. Their record drops to 43-56.

  • Cliff Lee was rusty in his return to the rotation, allowing six runs on 12 hits through 5.2 innings. 
  • Lee pitched decently through the first five innings, allowing only three runs, but things fell apart for the veteran in the sixth when he allowed three runs on four hits including a two-run homer and a double.
  • The Phillies offense showed a little bit of pulse last night, picking up 14 hits.
  • Six of the team’s starters picked up multiple hits.
  • Grady Sizemore started again in center field, and went 1-5, keeping his hitting streak alive.
  • Jimmy Rollins went 2-5 with a two-run single in the second inning.
  • Chase Utley went 2-5 with a couple of singles.
  • Ryan Howard went 2-5, and knocked in two runs in the fourth with a single.
  • Marlon Byrd went 2-5.
  • Cody Asche had a three-hit night, finishing 3-4.
  • Cameron Rupp went 2-4 and scored a run.
  • Justin De Fratus recorded the final out of the sixth inning.
  • Antonio Bastardo struck out two in a scoreless seventh.
  • Jeff Manship allowed a run to score in the eighth.
  • Mario Hollands worked a clean ninth.

Final Thoughts

Cliff Lee’s return seemed to give the offense a bit of a jolt, but Lee wasn’t sharp at all in his return.

Lee struggled to hit his spots, fell behind too many batters, and gave up a ton of hits.

Maybe its just rust, and a product of not pitching in the majors in nearly two months, but it wasn’t a very encouraging return for Lee. Its hard to imagine the Phillies parting with him at the trade deadline at this point, simply because his value just isn’t there right now. on Facebook

  1. Should have yanked Lee after 5 Innings,
    He hasn’t Pitched in almost 2 months, and could have had him leave
    The game while feeling decent about his performance considering the rust and more importantly, Keep up his Trade Status ..instead he returns for the 6th to face the line-up a 3rd time they and gets shelled…

  2. looks like classy cliff lee ended the night by literally farting on reporters. this guy is making fart jokes while his team fucking blows. fuck this guy. i cant wait for this dickhead reuben to sit on lee, cole, papsmear, rollins and utley

    Cliff Lee didn’t exactly pitch like Cy Young in his first start after coming off the 60-day DL on Monday night when he lost to the San Francisco Giants 7-4, but he didn’t totally shit the bed either.

    Lee had trouble locating his pitches. He finished his 5.2 innings of work giving up 12 hits, 6 earned runs, a free pass, and a home run.

    Three Giants did get whiffed though.

    Being dealt wasn’t on Lee’s mind, he said following the game. And his performance would not likely increase the return Ruben Amaro Jr. will be able to ask from team’s looking for a guy who can bring the heat in a pinch.

    Cliff seemed pretty calm talking with reporters about his outing after the game. It didn’t seem like he really needed to let off any steam or anything. He appeared to have to let something else out actually.

    It didn’t take being in the clubhouse to know Cliff Lee stunk on Monday night. But, uh, those there may have had to deal with the lingering effects a bit longer.
