After dropping the first two games of the four-game series in Arizona, the Phillies bounced back on Saturday night and were victorious against the Diamondbacks by a score of 3-1.
Cliff Lee went seven shutout innings, striking out three and walking two in the process. The veteran notched his 4th win of the season, after having won just one time in his previous five starts.
Jonathan Papelbon came on in the 8th to lock down a five-out save. The Phils’ closer is perfect in six save opportunities this season.
Jimmy Rollins was 2-for-3 with two RBI and a steal to lead the offense while Ryan Howard went 0-for-5 and locked down a golden sombrero, striking out four times in the contest. Ben Revere also collected two hits and swiped a bag.
What’s next- Kyle Kendrick, who sports a 1.71 ERA in his last six starts, will try to close out the Phillies’ road trip with a win, as he takes on Brandon McCarthy, who has a 7.61 ERA in four home starts this year.
