Cliff Lee (14-6, 2.95) vs. Carlos Torress (3-5, 3.39)
It’s the last home game of the season: fan appreciation day! Fans might not appreciate the 2013 Phillies club that much compared to the teams in recent years, but one thing they can appreciate is today’s starter, Cliff Lee. Lee has been unbelievable this season, as his ERA has dropped below three. Lee has made the season bearable, with his impressive starts every five days. Yes, he did have a rough patch during the mid-summer months, but he has truly been unstoppable as of late. It’s a shame Lee is having such a magnificent year while the rest of the team struggles, but the fans will take any positive they can get at this point.
Soak it in: after today there will be no baseball played at Citizens Bank Park until 2014.
