Friedrich (5-6) got the best of Cliff Lee (1-6) in his first career appearance against the Phillies, who have lost five straight and 11 of their past 12 games.

In winning for the first time in more than a month, Friedrich allowed one run and five hits, struck out seven and walked one.

Lee, who got his only win of the season in his previous start July 4 against the New York Mets, allowed three runs — two earned — and nine hits in six innings.

Philadelphia fell to 4-11 in Lee’s starts this season after going 22-10 in his 32 starts a year ago.
