Phillies 12, Marlins 2
Game 150 - Monday Night, September 16th in Philadelphia
Record - 70-80, 3rd Place, 19 1/2 games behind the Braves
One Sentence Summary: It was the Cliff Lee Show in South Philly last night as Lee (and a few others) easily handled the Marlins, 12-2.
What It Means: Lee is awesome. One of my main hopes for 2014 is that he and Cole Hamels are able to carry over their successful seasons.
What Went Right: Lee struck out 14 in his eight innings of work, while allowing just two runs. He improved his record to 14-6, and lowered his ERA to 2.95 in the process. Perhaps even more impressive than his mound performance was his 3 for 4 night at the plate, with a triple and four RBIs. His big night resulted in the most RBIs for a Phillies pitcher since Robert Person had seven RBIs on June 2, 2002.
Chase Utley contributed a three-run home run in the third, his 17th of the season.
Featured Card: If I had to guess, I'd say I've featured more Lee baseball cards this season than any other player on the Phillies. This is his base card from this year's Allen & Ginter set.
