Phillies have lost both games since the Cliff Lee trade. The first loss J.A Happ pitched well only giving up two runs to a Justin Upton HR. Phillies though could not get their offense going after stranding runners bases loaded with no outs. Then the next game against the Giants again runner on third no outs and still no runs. That wasn’t the only problem though. Rodrigo Lopez had trouble with his location and left too many balls over the plate and the result is 7 runs. Not all of it was his fault, as the defense wasn’t having its best night.Final score Giants 7 Phillies 2. Tonight may all change as Cliff Lee makes his debut as a phil. Cliff Lee is 2-0 against the Giants and the are hoping they can make it 3-0. Speaking of Lee, Ben Francisco made his debut last night and went 1-4 with a double. Francisco is probably going to play in CF again for Victorino who has a knee contusion after diving for a ball against the Diamondbacks on Thursday. Lee is going against Ryan Sadowski who is 2-3 with a 4.81 era. His last appearance, against the Rockies, he he went 2.2 IP and had 3 ER. Hopefully he can repeat that same preformance as the phils hope to end their two game losing streak.
