Cliff Lee returned to pitch for the Phillies Monday night for the first time since May 18th. After Lee won that game against the Reds, the Fightin’ Phils were 19-22 and just 3.5 games back of first in the NL East. Coming into last night’s game, the Phillies were 43-55 and 11 games back.
Lee allowed six runs on 12 hits in 5 2/3 innings on Monday as the Phillies lost to the Giants, 7-4, falling to 43-56 and 12 games back.
But it was Lee's postgame interview where he summed up things pretty well.
Cliff Lee didn't have much to say about trades, but he did end his interview session with an emphatic fart, of which he seemed quite proud.
