After Trades, Phillies Blank Nationals

Cliff Lee threw seven innings and scored on Jimmy Rollins’ inside-the-park home run to lead the Philadelphia Phillies to an 8-0 victory over the Washington Nationals on Tuesday night.

On the same day Philadelphia traded outfielders Shane Victorino to the Los Angeles Dodgers and Hunter Pence to the San Francisco Giants, one of the Phillies’ other former All-Stars heavily involved in trade rumors — Lee — excelled.

Lee (2-6) allowed five hits and one walk and struck out seven for Philadelphia, which snapped a three-game losing streak.

He hit a two-out single to drive in John Mayberry in the fourth inning. For good measure, Lee stole second, his second career steal, before scoring on Rollins’ fourth career inside-the-park home run.
