June 22, 2011 – Phillies 4, Cardinals 0
For the second consecutive start, Cliff Lee was near-untouchable.
Just six days after two-hitting the Florida Marlins, Lee again pitched the whole way without allowing a single run. The Cardinals reached base just seven times on the day, as Lee won his fourth consecutive start in the midst of a dominant stretch.
On the offensive side, Jimmy Rollins started the damage in the top of the fourth against former teammate Kyle Lohse, smacking a home run to lead off the inning and give the Phillies a 1-0 lead. They added two more in the inning on a Chase Utley single followed by a Ryan Howard home run, giving Lee plenty of room to pitch them to a victory.
With this start, Lee became the first Phillie since Corey Lidle in 2004 to pitch a complete-game shutout in back-to-back starts. His ERA throughout June to this point was a miniscule 0.27, and would only improve in his next start against the Boston Red Sox.
