Wait what about Roy Halladay? How are we going to win without Halladay? Can we win the World Series without Halladay? Well we got Cliff Lee. WHAT? He is good but he isn’t Halladay. WRONG. Cliff Lee went 9 innings allowing only 4 hits 1 earned run and 6 K’s. Oh wait did I mention he went 2-4 with a run and a double that hit the top of the wall. Well he did and he got a win his in Phillies debut which snapped a two game losing streak. Ok enough about Lee and about the game. Jayson Werth had a great game going 2-5 with a HR and 3 RBI’s. The Phillies still had problems with runners in scoring position until the seventh. Bases were loaded and Raul Ibanez gets walked and that brought in Jimmy Rollins. Then Jayson Werth singled to center which drove in Utley and Howard. That gave them a 4-0 lead and the way Cliff Lee was pitching there was no chance of coming back and that held true. Final score Phillies 4 Giants 1.
Just a side note Pedro Martinez made a rehab start in Triple A (against Carlos Carrasco who was traded for Lee) and he went 5 IP allowing 3 hits 4 ER and 3 walks. He let up most of the runs in the 5th. So Pedro still needs two or three more reab starts until his arm is in game ready shape.
