Lee's night was not just spectacular on the mound, however, he also showed what he can do at the plate. Lee entered the game 2 for 32 lifetime at the dish, but he showed that he can swing a bat as he went 2 for 4 and scored a run. Lee crushed a double in the 8th inning that nearly left the ballpark and could have easily been a homer at Citizens Bank. His hitting prowess may not last long, but it was a nice surprise tonight.
Roy Halladay who? With one outing, Cliff Lee proved that the Phillies made the right choice in acquiring the lefty ace. Even though Lee may not always be as dominant as he was out there on Friday night, it's clear that he is going to win some games for the Phillies. Welcome to the Phillies, Lee, with a few more performances like that, you are going to experience first hand what it means to be a World F'n Champion.
