2013 Topps Gypsy Queen #189 Cliff Lee

Dodgers 4, Phillies 3
Game 82 - Late Saturday Night, June 29th in Los Angeles
Record - 39-43, 3rd Place, 8 1/2 games behind the Braves

Colossal Post-Vacation Catch-Up, Part 8 of 9

One Sentence Summary:  Justin De Fratus lost his third game of the week as the Dodgers walked off with a 4-3 win.

What It Means:  So much for the good vibes from the previous day's 16-1 victory.

What Went Wrong:  The offense went 0 for 10 with runners in scoring position, leaving 11 total runners on base.  The Phillies managed to tie the game in the ninth thanks in part to errors from Yasiel Puig and Matt Kemp, but De Fratus allowed the winning run to score in the bottom of the inning.

Cliff Lee's one mistake was allowing a first inning, three-run home run to Hanley Ramirez.  He shut down the Dodgers from the second through the seventh innings, striking out 10.

Featured Card:  Dear Ruben Amaro, Jr. - Please don't trade Cliff Lee.  Sincerely, The Phillies Room.
