The Cliff Lee Report

by Bill Chuck on September 17, 2013

Like the Adam Dunn Report, which I filed today, this story has no value towards the postseason baseball discussion, but it is uniquely interesting.

Cliff Lee had three hits, four RBI and struck out a season-high 14, walking none, to lead the Philadelphia Phillies to a 12-2 win over the Miami Marlins.

Nine to Know

Other than Lee, nine times pitchers have had three hits in a game this season
