Phillies bounce back, top Giants
The Phillies bounced back from consecutive losses to the lowly Marlins with a 6-2 win over the defending World Series champions in San Francisco Monday night.
Cliff Lee pitched eight innings to pick up the win for the Phillies (15-18).
Just hours after learning starter Roy Halladay was put on the disabled list with an apparent shoulder injury, the Phillies pounded out 10 hits against Giants pitching. Third baseman Michael Young went 3 for 4 with two doubles and three RBI.
Domonic Brown hit a long home run into McCovey Cove off Giants starter Madison Bumgarner in the fifth inning to give the Phillies a commanding 5-1 advantage. It was Brown’s sixth home run of the season.
Lee (3-2) struck out six and walked none while allowing five hits and two runs over his eight innings of work.
Former Phillie Hunter Pence homered off Lee in the second inning for the Giants (19-13).
