Cliff Lee got his fifth win today against the Mets. He went 7 innings allowing 0 ER on six hits and had 5 strikeouts. That makes him 5-0 with a 0.68 in a Phillies uniform. Ryan Howard stayed hot hitting two home runs, one a three run shot, and the other a two run shot.Howard is only the second player in phillies franchise history to have four consecutive 30 home run 100 RBI seasons. The other phillie to do this was Chuck Klein. Final score was 6-2 phillies. Phillies won the series 3-1 against the injured Mets. Now the phils are going to head to Pittsburgh for a 3 game series with the Pirates. Blanton will be on the hill for the phillies. Blanton (RHP) is coming in with a 3.86 ERA with a 8-6 record. He went 8 innings allowing 3 ER and came out with a win his last outing against the D-Backs. Ohlendorf (RHP) will start for the Pirates he is 11-6 with a 4.15 ERA. He got a win his last start going 7 innings only giving up 1 ER. The philles should sweep this below .500 team and hope to strengthen their lead in the East.
Side Notes: Jayson Werth was named player of the week he had a .440 average driving in 9 RBI. Myers rehab start was rained out Sunday and is expected to make a start today.
