Cliff Lee got his sixth straight win Wednesday, leading the Philadelphia Phillies to a 3-0 victory over the Cincinnati Reds and took the Phillies to a new high point in the NL East. The NL East leaders are a season-best 40 games over .500, boasting the majors’ best record at 86-46.
Cliff Lee (15-7) extended the Phillies domination with this shutout. He left in the ninth inning with the bases loaded, but Ryan Madson retired the rest of the Cincinnati lined-up for his 25th save in 27 chances and gave Lee and the Phillies the Win. Lee’s second straight shutout gave the Phillies 19 shutouts this season, most in the majors.
I personally think that in the National League there is only one team that’s is for sure in the MLB Finals of 2011 and that is the Philadelphia Phillies, they have the best pitchers in MLB and also they have a very good offensive team; Any coach could make it to the finals with a team like the Phillies have this season.
