Cliff Lee will be sent to the mound Sunday afternoon with the task of salvaging a game in the Phillies’ series finale with Milwaukee. Lee is in the midst of one of his dominant stretches, and has been the winner in each of his last five starts. In those five starts, he has allowed just five earned runs in 39 innings (1.15 ERA), which is the lowest in all of Major League Baseball in the last month by almost half a run. He has not had success against the Brewers in his career, however, pitching to a 0-1 record and 5.08 ERA in five starts against them.

His mound opponent will be right-hander Mike Fiers, who is making just his third start in what will be 11 appearances for Milwaukee this year. In his two other starts he is the owner of an 0-2 record and 10.00 ERA. He also  gave up five home runs in just nine total innings between the two games.

The Phillies offense will need to try to take advantage of yet another struggling pitcher, which is something they have had opportunities to do but have failed to execute. Unlike last night against Peralta, several Phillies players have faced Fiers before, with Ryan Howard (2-for-4, two doubles, RBI) and John Mayberry (1-for-3, solo home run) having the most success.

Lineup: Revere CF, Hernandez 2B, Rollins SS, Howard 1B, Brown LF, Mayberry RF, Kratz C, Galvis 3B, Lee P
