Cliff Lee Homers And Shuts Down Dodgers For Phili Win

LOS ANGELES (AP)— Cliff Lee pitched eight scoreless innings with 10 strikeouts and hit his second career home run, leading the Philadelphia Phillies to a 2-1 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers on Tuesday night.

Jimmy Rollins had an RBI single to help the Phillies win for the 11th time in 12 games and go 36 games over .500 (76-40) for the first time since 1977, when the team finished 101-61 and lost to the Dodgers in the NL championship series.

Philadelphia maintained its 8 1/2-game lead over Atlanta in the NL East.

Lee (12-7) allowed four singles and only two runners past first base, and Ryan Madson got three outs for his 21st save in 22 chances.

Ted Lilly (7-12) allowed two runs and six hits over eight innings with five strikeouts and a walk.
