WP: Tyler Cloyd (1-0, 2.70 ERA) LP: Duane Below (0-1, 27.00 ERA)
Well, there was hardly anything to complain about tonight for the pessimistic Phillies fans that have been surfacing as of late. Everything went as plan, well almost as Chase Utley was scratched with right side discomfort. Tyler Cloyd threw well enough for his first win of the season as he lasted seven strong innings, allowing just two earned runs on eight hits and two walks.
Domonic Brown, Ryan Howard and Delmon Young were the center pieces of the Phils offense tonight, going a combined 6-12 with a total of seven runs batted it. Delmon Young homered for the second time of the season in the top of the fourth inning to kick-off the scoring for both teams in tonight's action.
Cliff Lee starts tomorrow evening in the series finale as he will oppose Kevin Slowey. First-pitch set for 7:10 pm ET.
