Lee foils LA’s plan to try to keep it close and beat him in penalty kicks

I’m not saying that Lee can’t be beat in penalty kicks, either. Cause I have no idea. But it wouldn’t surprise me that much if it proved to be true. Lee homered in the seventh last night, driving in what would prove to be the winning run, and threw eight shutout innings as the Phils topped the Dodgers 2-1.

After allowing one run in 42 innings in June, Lee had an off July in which he threw to a 4.91, but has now thrown 15 shutout innings to start August.

With the win, the Phils improve to 11-1 over their last 12 games. They have allowed more than three runs in a game once in their last nine times out. They’ve gotten six quality starts in a row and quality starts in 12 of their last 15 games.

The Phillies are 76-40 for the year after beating the LA Dodgers 2-1 last night. They are 36 games over .500 for the first time on the year and lead the NL East by 8 1/2 games.

Lee got the start for the Phillies and went eight shutout innings, allowing four singles and two walks. He struck out ten and dropped his ERA on the year to 2.83.

Dee Gordon led off the bottom of the first and singled. He stole second before moving up to third on a bunt single by Jamey Carroll. Lee struck Andre Ethier out swinging 2-2 and Matt Kemp out swinging 1-2. Carroll stole second before Lee got Aaron Miles to pop to Howard in foul territory and leave both runners stranded.

No run for the Dodgers after putting men on first and third with no outs. Big strikeouts for Lee of Ethier and Kemp.

Lee struck out Tony Gwynn and Rod Barajas setting the Dodgers down in order in the second.

He threw a 1-2-3 third with a 1-0 lead.

He struck Ethier and Kemp both out again in a 1-2-3 fourth.

Casey Blake started the fifth with a single, but Lee struck Barajas and Gwynn both out behind him. The pitcher Ted Lilly grounded to second for the third out.

Dee Gordon led off the bottom of the sixth and put down a beautiful bunt between the mound and first base. Howard made a great play, fielding the bunt and diving to tag Gordon for the first out. Carroll followed that with a single to right, but Lee got Ethier on a ground ball to second and Kemp on a popup to first to end the inning.

Lee pitched the seventh with a 2-0 lead. He walked Barajas with two outs, but struck Gwynn out behind him to leave Barajas at first.

Switch-hitter Eugenio Velez hit for Lilly to start the ninth and Lee walked him on a 3-2 pitch. Gordon was next and aggravated a right-shoulder injury fouling off a pitch during his at-bat. Trent Oeltjen hit for him and grounded into a double-play that cleared the bases. Lee struck Carroll out to end the inning.

Madson started the ninth with a one-run lead and gave up a leadoff single to Ethier. Kemp followed with a ground out to third with Ethier forced at second for the first out. Righty Juan Rivera hit for Miles and grounded to second for the second out with Kemp moving up to second. Blake was next and he singled into left. Kemp scored from second, cutting the lead in half at 2-1. Madson struck Barajas out swinging 1-2 to end the game.

Madson threw 17 pitches in the game and has thrown for two days in a row. He gets hurt by the leadoff single by the lefty Ethier in this game, but he’s fared well against lefties for the year. They are hitting just 206/296/296 against him for the season.

The Phillies lineup against lefty Ted Lilly went (1) Rollins (2) Victorino (3) Utley (4) Howard (5) Pence (6) Mayberry (7) Ruiz (8) Valdez. Mayberry in left with Ibanez on the bench against the lefty. Valdez at third with Martinez on the bench and Polanco sidelined with a sports hernia.

Rollins and Victorino singled back-to-back to start the game, putting men on first and second with nobody out for Utley. Utley hit a liner to short and Gordon made a fantastic play, short-hopping the ball, tagging Rollins and tossing to second to complete the double-play. It left Utley on first with two outs. He stole second before Howard grounded to Blake at first to set the Phillies down.

The Phils went in order in the second.

Valdez led off the third with a single and Lee bunted him to second with the first out. Rollins was next and he blooped a 1-1 pitch over Blake at first that rolled and rolled in right. Valdez scored from second to put the Phils up 1-0 and Rollins had a double. Victorino was next and was hit by a pitch, putting runners on first and second. Utley grounded to the pitcher with Victorino forced at second for the second out and Rollins moving up to third. Howard grounded to short for the third out.

Two hits in two at-bats for Rollins — this one got the job done even if it wasn’t particularly majestic. Lee gets the bunt down to move Valdez up to second. He would come through with the bat later in the game as well.

Ruiz reached second on an error by Carroll with two outs in the fourth, but Valdez flew to right behind him.

Rollins walked with one out in the fifth, but Victorino popped to third and Utley flew to center to leave him at first.

With one out in the sixth, Pence singled into center on a ball deflected by Carroll at second. Mayberry was next and grounded to the pitcher for the second out, with Pence moving up to second. Ruiz grounded to second to end the frame.

Valdez grounded out to start the seventh. It brought Lee to the plate and he hit a 2-0 pitch out to right, putting the Phils on top 2-1. Rollins and Victorino went down behind him.

The Phils went in order in the eighth and again in the ninth.

Rollins 2-for-3 with a double and a walk. Over his last seven games he’s 8-for-27 with five walks and a .406 on-base percentage.

Victorino 1-for-3. 371/467/640 in his last 107 plate appearances (which have included a little more than two weeks on the DL).

Utley was 0-for-4 and left five men on base. 3-for-his-last-16 with three singles.

Howard 0-for-4 with a strikeout. 3-for-his-last-21 with a walk, a double and 11 strikeouts.

Pence 1-for-4 and struck out twice. 3-for-his-last-11 with a walk. The Phillies are 10-1 in the game he’s played with them this year. He’s hitting 356/388/556 in 49 plate appearances for the Phils. Likes to dive a lot.

Mayberry 0-for-4. 6-for-his-last-21 with four home runs. He hasn’t drawn a walk in his last 57 plate appearances.

Ruiz 0-for-4 with a strikeout. 3-for-his-last-18 with three singles.

Valdez 1-for-4 with a single. 250/298/338 in 572 plate appearances with the Phillies over the last two seasons.

Vance Worley (8-1, 2.35) faces righty Chad Billingsley (10-9, 4.17) this afternoon. Billingsley has allowed 15 runs in 24 innings over his last four starts, throwing to a 5.63 ERA. Lefties have had a lot of success against him for the year. They haven’t hit for a ton of power, but have a .272 batting average and a .372 on-base percentage against Billingsley for the season. Worley has allowed more than two runs in a start just once in his last nine outings. The Phils are 11-2 in the games he’s started this year.


There’s no place like road

The Phils won for the tenth time in 11 games last night, scoring three early runs and holding on for a 5-3 win. The bullpen was a bit shaky in the eighth in relief of Halladay as Stutes and Lidge combined to allow a pair of runs that got the Dodgers within one. But Victorino homered in the top of the ninth to give the Phils a two-run cushion and Madson kept the Dodgers off the board in the bottom of the inning for his twentieth save.

Victorino had a big game for the Phils, pounding out a pair of doubles and a home run and scoring three of the five runs plated by the Phils.

It’s been a remarkable road trip that has seen the Phils go 7-1 with two games left to go. The Phils have outscored their opponents 37-18 so far on the trip and have allowed more than three runs just once in the eight games. The Phillies have also played for 18 straight days without an off-day, going 14-4 in those games.

The Phillies are 75-40 on the year after beating the LA Dodgers 5-3 last night. The Phils have won ten of their last eleven and lead the NL East by 8 1/2 games.

Halladay got the start for the Phillies and went 6 1/3 innings, allowing a run on nine hits and two walks. All nine of the hits were singles and he struck out four.

He started the bottom of the first with a 1-0 lead. Casey Blake and Andre Ethier singled back-to-back with one out, putting men on first and second for Matt Kemp. Halladay got Kemp to hit into a double-play to keep LA off the board.

James Loney singled to center with one out in the second and the Phils up 3-0. Halladay got Rod Barajas to pop to Utley for the second out and Jamey Carroll on a ground ball to short to end the inning.

Halladay walked Blake on five pitches with two outs in the third. Ethier followed with a single on a ball deflected by Howard, putting men on first and second with two down. Halladay got Kemp on a popup to Utley for the third out.

Second time in three innings Halladay comes up big against Kemp with men on base.

Halladay set LA down in order in the fourth.

Carroll and pitcher Hiroki Kuroda started the fifth with back-to-back singles, putting men on first and second. Tony Gwynn bunted the runners to second and third with the first out. Blake followed with a ground ball to short, with Rollins throwing to first for the second out and Carroll scoring from third to cut the Phillies lead to 3-1. Halladay struck Andre Ethier out swinging 3-2 to leave Kuroda at second.

Kemp and Miles singled back-to-back to start the sixth, putting men on first and second for Loney. Loney lined a ball to right, but Pence charged and made a diving catch for the first out with the runners holding. Barajas flew to left for the second out and Halladay struck Carroll out looking to leave both men stranded.

Halladay started the seventh up 4-1. Gwynn singled with one out and moved to second when Blake followed with a walk. It put men on first and second for the lefty Ethier. Halladay had thrown 111 pitches in the game. Manuel called on Bastardo to pitch to Ethier and Ethier got ahead 3-0 but grounded into a double-play on a 3-1 pitch to turn LA away.

Stutes started the eighth. Kemp led off with a single and stole second. Miles followed that with a single to left that scored Kemp and cut the Phillie lead to 4-2. Stutes threw the ball away trying to pick Miles off of first, allowing Miles to move up to second. Loney flew to center for the first out with Miles moving up to third. Lidge took over to face the righty Barajas and walked him on five pitches, putting men on first and third with one down. Righty Juan Rivera hit for the pitcher Matt Guerrier and Eugenio Velez ran for Barajas at first. Rivera singled to left, scoring Miles (4-3) and sending Velez to second. Dee Gordon was the next hitter and he hit a ball slowly to second. Utley charged and waited for it in the basepath, where Rivera plowed him over. Rivera was called out for the second out, Velez went back to second and Gordon was safe at first. Velez and Gordon moved up to second and third on a passed ball with Gwynn at the plate. Gwynn tried to bunt for a base hit and put down a nice bunt on the first base side. Lidge made a nice play to end the inning, though, getting to the ball, gloving and flipping with his glove hand to get Gwynn and end the inning.

Miserable inning for Stutes, who allowed two singles, a steal and made a throwing error while getting one out. After throwing to a 2.08 ERA over his first 23 appearances on the year, Stutes has now pitched to a 4.87 ERA over his last 18 appearances. Lidge fared a little better, allowing a walk, a single and a wild pitch while getting two outs. In his seven appearances for the year he has allowed just two hits in 5 1/3 innings, but walked five.

Madson pitched the ninth with a two-run lead. He gave up a leadoff single to Blake, but got Ethier on a foul ball to Martinez for the first out and struck Kemp out swinging 0-2 for the second. Miles chopped a ball out in front of the plate, but Ruiz jumped on it and threw to first in time to end the game.

Nice job by Madson setting down Ethier and Kemp without a peep as the tying runs. He has allowed one run in 11 2/3 innings over his last 12 appearances.

Lidge and Stutes have both pitched two days in a row. Lidge threw 14 pitches in the game and Stutes 12. Bastardo five and Madson 17.

The Phillies lineup against righty Hiroki Kuroda went (1) Rollins (2) Victorino (3) Utley (4) Howard (5) Pence (6) Ibanez (7) Ruiz (8) Martinez. Martinez starts again at third with Polanco getting MRIed in Philadelphia.

Victorino doubled to center with one out in the first. Utley followed with a ground out to second that moved him up to third with one out. Howard was next and he squibbed a ball that went over the pitcher’s head and spun towards third. Blake threw to first, but not in time to get Howard. Howard had a single, Victorino scored and the Phils led 1-0. Pence moved Howard to second with a single, but Ibanez fouled out to Loney at first to leave both men stranded.

Ruiz led off the second with a single and moved to third when Martinez reached on a throwing error by Loney. Halladay bunted Martinez to second with the first out. Rollins was next and cleared the bases with a double to the gap in right-center, putting the Phils on top 3-0. Victorino moved Rollins to third with a ground out, but Utley flew to right to leave him there.

Pence singled with one out in the third, but Ibanez hit into a double-play behind him.

Martinez singled with one out in the fourth and Halladay bunted him to second with the second out. Rollins followed with a walk, but Victorino struck out looking to leave both men stranded.

Utley led off the fifth with a single and stole second, but Howard and Pence both struck out and Ibanez grounded to second.

The lead was cut to 3-0 when the Phils went in order in the sixth.

Victorino doubled to right with one out in the seventh. Lefty Scott Elbert took over for Kuroda and got Utley on a fly ball to center for the second out. Howard ripped a 3-2 pitch into right center and the ball rolled to the wall for a double. Victorino scored and the Phils led 4-1. The lefty Elbert walked Pence intentionally, putting men on first and second for Ibanez, but Elbert struck Ibanez out swinging 1-2 to leave the runners stranded.

The Phils went in order in the eighth. With two outs, nobody on and righty Matt Guerrier pitching for the Dodgers, Gload hit for Bastardo and lined to second.

Gload is 3-for-his-last-24.

The Phils were up 4-2 when they hit in the ninth. Rollins flew to left for the first out, but Victorino was next and he lined a 1-2 pitch out to right, putting the Phils up 5-2. Utley and Howard went down behind him.

For Victorino, it was his fifth home run of the year with two strikes. That ties him for the team lead with Rollins and Mayberry.

Rollins was 1-for-4 with a double and two RBI in the game. 6-for-32 (.188) so far in August.

Victorino 3-for-5 with two doubles and a home run. 333/425/600 in 88 plate appearances since returning from the DL.

Utley 1-for-5. 343/418/614 over his last 79 plate appearances.

Howard 2-for-5 with a double and two RBI. He’s 3-for-his-last-17 with ten strikeouts. He did deliver a big double against the lefty Elbert in the seventh, helping him raise his line against lefties on the year to 246/303/358.

Pence 2-for-3 with a walk. 444/467/741 in 30 plate appearances over his last seven games.

Ibanez was 0-for-4 and left six men on base. He’s 0-for-his-last-12 and hitting 143/200/214 so far in August.

Ruiz 1-for-4. 3-for-his-last-8 and 3-for-his-last-14. 318/408/471 over his last 100 plate appearances.

Cliff Lee (11-7, 2.96) faces lefty Ted Lilly (7-1, 4.86) tonight. Righties are hitting 275/322/504 against Lilly for the year with 21 home runs. If you’re wondering if 21 is a lot of home runs to have allowed to right-handed batters at this point in the season, it really, really is. Lee threw a complete game shutout against the Giants in his last start. He faced the Dodgers on June 6 in Philadelphia and struck out ten in seven shutout innings.

Polanco has a sports hernia and may need surgery that could sideline him for a month. Of the 176 NL players with at least 150 plate appearances this season, Martinez’s .265 on-base percentage is 169th and Valdez’s .284 on-base percentage is 157th.

The article linked above says that Mathieson was sent back to Triple-A after clearing waivers.


My kind of rebound, Chicago

After three miserable losses in a row, the Phils finally got the rebound they needed in Chicago as they took the last two games of the four-game set.

A huge stand in the bottom of the eighth of Saturday’s game may have turned things around for the Phils. After disheartening failures by the pen three days in a row, Romero entered the eighth with nobody out and the Phils clinging to a 5-2 lead with men on first and second. Romero came up huge, striking out the side, and the Phils went on to win the game and the last two games of the series.

Jayson Werth has carried the sluggish Phillies’ offense, going 5-for-8 with a double and three home runs in the last two games. Over the last two games he has seven RBI — the Phillies have scored ten runs.

The Phils scored just 16 runs in the four-game set with the Cubs — that’s a bit odd considering how hot Werth has been and that Rollins, Utley and Howard all had nice series with the bat.

Despite the bullpen blowups in games one and two of the set, Phillies’ pitching has been pretty good overall of late. They allowed 14 runs over their last four games. The Cubs had one extra-base hit in the last three games of the series, the game-winning home run by Soriano in game two of the four-game set.

Still, the bullpen has to be the worry spot for the Phils fan. It’s not a coincidence that in their last two games the pen has allowed a run over six innings and the Phils have won both.

The Phillies beat the Chicago Cubs yesterday afternoon, winning 5-3 to improve to 75-62 on the year. They start September in second place in the NL East, one game behind the Mets.

Moyer got the start for the Phillies and went 5 1/3 innings, allowing two runs on eight hits and two walks. All eight hits were singles and he struck out four.

He started the first up 3-0. Reed Johnson singled with one out, but Moyer got the next two.

Mark DeRosa and Geovany Soto started the second with back-to-back singles. Fukudome hit a ground ball to first that should have been two, but the Phils didn’t turn it. Howard threw to second for the force, but Rollins couldn’t make the relay to first and Fukudome was safe as DeRosa went to third. Ronny Cedeno was next and he hit a fly ball to center that Victorino lost in the sun. The ball went off his leg for a single. DeRosa scored to cut the Phillies’ lead to 3-1 as Fukudome went to second. The pitcher Sean Marshall showed bunt and then swung away, singling up the middle. Fukudome scored (3-2) and Cedeno went to third. Soriano flew to center for the second out and Cedeno had to hold. Johnson flew to right to end the inning.

Moyer walked Derrek Lee to start the third. He got the next two before Soto moved Lee to third with a single. Fukudome struck out swinging to leave them both stranded.

Soriano singled with two outs in the fourth, but Moyer struck Johnson out behind him.

Moyer threw a 1-2-3 fifth.

He started the sixth up 5-2. Fukudome singled with one out and moved to second when Cedeno followed with a walk. Righty Ryan Theriot hit for the pitcher and Durbin relieved Moyer. Durbin struck out Theriot and got Soriano to pop to second.

Durbin threw a 1-2-3 seventh.

Durbin started the eighth. Soto singled with one out. Romero came in to pitch to Fukudome and a wild pitch moved Soto to second. Fukudome grounded to second and Soto went to third with two down. Righty Henry Blanco hit for the pitcher and singled. Soto scored and it was 5-3. Madson came in and gave up a single to pinch-hitter Darlye Ward. It brought up Soriano as the tying run, but Madson struck him out to end the inning.

Lidge threw a 1-2-3 ninth, throwing for his second straight day.

Romero was also throwing for the second straight day. Overall, the pen went four innings in the game, allowing a run on three hits while striking out five. Durbin threw 33 pitches. Everyone else was under ten.

The Phillies’ lineup against lefty Sean Marshall went (1) Rollins (2) Utley (3) Burrell (4) Howard (5) Victorino (6) Werth (7) Feliz (8) Ruiz. Werth hits sixth against the lefty with not-a-good-five-hitter Victorino fifth. Ruiz catches. Carlos Zambrano was scheduled to start the game for the Cubs, but was scratched with a tired arm.

Utley walked with one out and stole second. Burrell struck out for the second out, but Howard singled into right and Utley scored to put the Phils up 1-0. Victorino send Howard to second with a single before Werth delivered a two-run double to right. 3-0. Feliz popped to third for the third out.

Big two-out hits from Howard, Victorino and Werth help get the Phils three runs.

With two outs in the second, Rollins singled and stole second. An infield single by Utley moved him to third, but Burrell struck out to leave both runners stranded.

Howard led off the third with a double and went to third when Victorino reached on an infield single in front of the plate. Werth moved Victorino to second with a ground ball and Feliz was walked intentionally to load the bases for Ruiz with one down. Ruiz flew to right with the runners holding and Moyer grounded back to the pitcher.

Ruiz can’t bring the runner in from third with one out.

The Phils went 1-2-3 in the fourth.

Werth homered with two outs in the fifth, putting the Phils up 4-2. Feliz grounded to the pitcher for the third out.

Ruiz led off the sixth with a double and Moyer bunted him to third. Rollins hit a fly ball to left deep enough to score Ruiz and the Phils led 5-2. Utley struck out for the third out.

Howard singled with one out in the seventh, but Victorino and Werth went down behind him.

The Phils went 1-2-3 in the eighth. With two outs, nobody on and the Phils up 5-2, Durbin hit for himself and struck out.

Utley and Burrell singled back-to-back with one out in the ninth. It put men on first and second and Bruntlett ran for Burrell at first. Howard struck out and Victorino flew to right.

Rollins was 1-for-4 with stolen base and an RBI in the game. 5-for-17 with a double and two stolen bases in the four-game series. He stole 12 bases in August and is hitting 270/335/433 for the season.

Utley was 2-for-4 with a walk in the game. 8-for-17 with a double in the set. 293/381/551 for the year.

Burrell was 1-for-5 with three strikeouts in the game. 3-for-18 in the series. After hitting 181/275/343 in August he’s at 257/375/525 for the year.

Howard was 3-for-5 with a double and a walk. 7-for-17 with two doubles and a home run in the series. 234/324/490 for the season.

Victorino 2-for-5. 3-for-16 with three singles in the series. Shouldn’t be hitting fifth. 283/347/434 for the year. Had some big hits in August, but hit only 262/319/411 for the month.

Werth was 2-for-4 with a double and his 21st home run. 7-for-13 with three doubles and three home runs in the series. 282/378/529 for the year.

Feliz was 0-for-3 with a walk. 0-for-11 with two walks in the series. 1-for-his-last-17. 251/298/412 for the season.

Ruiz was 1-for-4 with a double. 2-for-9 with two walks in the series. 221/320/292 for the year. Nice to see his on-base percentage nearly a hundred points higher than his batting average, but that’s still a hide-your-eyes ugly line. Coste was 1-for-6 in the series. He’s hitting 280/330/455 for the year.

Dobbs was 1-for-6 in the series and is hitting 296/332/452 for the year. Should play more — hopefully the addition of another left-handed bat to the bench in Stairs will make Manuel more willing to put Dobbs in the lineup.

On Saturday the Phils beat the Cubs 5-2 to improve to 74-62 on the season.

Myers got the start for the Phillies and went seven innings, allowing two runs on 11 hits. All of the hits were singles and he struck out eight. He didn’t walk a batter.

Lee singled to center with two outs in the second, but Myers struck out Ramirez for the third out.

DeRosa and Fukudome singled back-to-back with one out in the second. It put men on first and second for Soto and Soto singled into center. DeRosa scored to put the Cubs up 1-0 and Fukudome went to third. Myers struck out the pitcher Ted Lilly and got Soriano to fly to center to end the inning.

Theriot led off the third with a single and stole second before Lee moved him to third with a single. With men on first and third and nobody out, Ramirez fouled out to Howard and Edmonds hit into a double-play.

DeRosa singled to start the fourth. Fukudome grounded out and DeRosa was forced at second for the first out before a single by Soto put Fukudome on third. Lilly bunted Soto to second, but Myers got Soriano on a ball hit hard to short to leave both runners stranded.

Myers threw a 1-2-3 fifth with the game tied at 1-1.

And a 1-2-3 sixth up 3-1.

Two strikeouts in a 1-2-3 seventh.

Theriot and Lee singled to start the eighth. Ramirez was next and he singled, scoring Theriot from third and moving Lee to second with the Phils’ lead cut to 5-2. With the lefty Edmonds due to hit, Romero came in to pitch and the righty Johnson hit for Edmonds. Romero struck him out for the first out and followed that up by striking out Ronny Cedeno, hitting for the pitcher Neal Cotts, for the second. Fukudome drew a walk to load the bases, but Romero got Soto looking 1-2 to end the inning.

Finally, the bullpen gets a stop.

Lidge threw a 1-2-3 ninth.

The Phillies’ lineup against lefty Ted Lilly went (1) Rollins (2) Utley (3) Burrell (4) Howard (5) Victorino (6) Werth (7) Feliz (8) Coste. Burrell third and Victorino fifth against the lefty. Still would hit Werth fifth against the lefty.

Rollins singled to start the first and Utley was hit by a pitch, but the Phils went in order behind them.

1-2-3 in the second, third and fourth.

Werth led off the fifth with a home run that tied the game at 1-1. The Phils went in order behind him.
