The Phils losing streak rises to four games as Cliff Lee is once again denied his first win of 2012, as the Phils lose to the Dodgers, 2-1.

Another pitching gem by Cliff Lee is wasted as the Phils’ lack of run support while he is on the mound continue as the Phils lose to the Dodgers, 2-1.

The Phils took the lead in the first as, with a man on third, and with one man out, Hunter Pence hits an RBI single, scoring Jimmy Rollins, who had started the inning off with a double, then moved up to third base on Juan Pierre’s fly out to center, giving the Phils a 1-0 lead. The next six innings would see a pitchers’ duel between Phils’ starter Cliff Lee, who would only allow two hits and a walk, while striking out a season’s high twelve Dodgers, and Dodgers’ starter Chad Billingsley, who would give up just four more hits after the Pence’s single and a walk, while striking out only three Phils, before being lifted for a pinch hitter in the top of the eighth. The Dodgers would then start to put pressure on Lee in the eighth inning as Matt Treanor started the inning off with a double to center. The next batter, Tony Gwynn, Jr., tried to bunt Treanor over to third base, but the move fails as Lee quickly retrieved the ball, and threw it over to third base, whereupon third baseman Placido Polanco tags out Treanor for the inning’s first out on a 1-5 fielder’s choice, as Gwynn reaches first base safely. The next batter, pinch hitter Bobby Abreu then follows with a single to right, sending Gwynn up to second base, before Gwynn continues on to third base. Gwynn is gun down at third base by a strong throw from Pence, as Polanco applies the tag for the inning’s second out, 9-5, while Abreu stays at first base. With a chance to get out of the inning, Lee is unable to do so as Dee Gordon hits a single to right, moving Abreu up to second base. The Dodgers then take the lead as Elian Herrera hits a tw0-run double, knocking in both Abreu and Gordon, giving the Dodgers a 2-1 lead. That would end up being the final score as Kenley Jansen collected his eighth save of the year as he threw a scoreless ninth, getting Freddy Galvis to end the game by striking out, swinging.
