On the heels of Lee’s CG 2- hit shutout, the Phillies have improved to a Major League best 44-26.
In this most recent home stand Cliff went 3-0 with a .038 ERA, only surrendering one run in three starts.
Cliff had scuffled during the first two months of the season where he seemed to have difficulty finding his release point, but he’s not having that problem anymore.
“Ive had better stretches I think, to be honest with you,” Lee said. “It’s good. I don’t really try to compare this to that or whatever. This game is what is is, now it’s over. Now I move on to the next one, and I’m going to continue to look at it that way. It feels good to contribute and help the team win.”
Cliff was in total control of Thursday’s game from start to finish, and had a pretty big hit in the 4th inning. Cliff drove in the Phillies first run with an RBI double to right center field.
Plenty of reasons to smile.
As a team the Phillies really appear to be coming together in a month that usually finds them struggling.
