LAst Night's Action: Dodgers Strike Out Against Cliff Lee, Phillies
Philadelphia Phillies defeat LA Dodgers 3-1. A leadoff double by Wilson Valdez in the third inning doomed Dodgers’ starter Ted Lilly’s outing. He would go on to give up two runs thanks to RBI singles by Placido Polanco and Ryan Howard. Meanwhile the Dodgers faced seven innings of Cliff Lee and his 10 strikeouts, enough said. After the Phillies added a run in the eighth, the Dodgers had something going in the bottom of the ninth with the tying run at the plate. Dee Gordon, in his first Major League game, came in to pinch run for Juan Uribe and scored on Andre Ethier’s fielder’s choice. But that’s it. Ryan Madson kept things from getting out of hand earning his 13th save of the season.
