Phils going over a Cliff? Hardly

Can someone explain to me how Cliff Lee can still have zero wins after starting eight games?

That’s two less wins than the ageless Jamie Moyer, the 49-year-old wunderkind who was released by the Rockies this week.

Lee pitched well again last night, giving up three runs on seen hits, but he still has a big goose egg in the win column to show for it. His ERA is a solid 3.00.

The good news is that the Phils rallied late, getting a homer from this year’s hero, Carlos Ruiz, who came off the bench and homered to tie the game in the eighth. Jimmy Rollins’ homer in the ninth won it.

Lee was long gone by then.

Even better news? The Marlins beat the Nationals again, sweeping their series and further tightening the bunched NL East. The Phils are just three games back, though still residing in last place, looking up at the Braves, Mets, Miami and Nats.

But 3 games out with the injuries they’ve incurred? I’ll take it.
