Lee Leads Phillies Past Padres 4-2
Cliff Lee pitched eight sharp innings and Freddy Galvis had three hits to lead the Philadelphia Phillies to a 4-2 victory over the San Diego Padres on Wednesday night.
Lee (13-6) allowed two runs and five hits, struck out nine and walked one. It was the second straight eight-inning outing and fourth in the last six starts for Lee, who pounded his glove and skipped toward the dugout after fanning Jedd Gyorko to end the eighth.
Gyorko and Tommy Medica homered for the Padres, who had won four in a row. Medica’s solo shot in the fifth was his first hit in his major league debut.
Jonathon Papelbon pitched a scoreless ninth for his 26th save in 33 chances.
