The Phillies beat the Mets on Wednesday night by a score of 10-6. And while the offense finally produced some big runs, the hit parade did not actually arrive until after pitcher Cliff Lee exited the game. You know what that means…still no wins for Cliff Lee.
It has been 8 starts and 2 months and poor Lee has been shut-out of the win column. Carlos Ruiz tried to bust him out of winless jail by smacking a pinch hit 2-run homer in the 7th, but that merely tied the game. The lead finally arrived in the 8th when Shane Victorino hit a sac fly to score Juan Pierre. Sadly though, Lee was no longer the pitcher of record at that point.
And all those runs they pounded out in the 9th inning, including a Jimmy Rollins homer, also did Lee little good. We can all agree…wins are good! But how about sharing the cookies with a starving man? Geez.
With that in mind, I have decided to start a support group for Cliff Lee. As you can see, his teammates appear to be on board:
So let’s get to it, Phillies! Get Cliff a freakin’ win already!
Thank you in advance.
