But, in his last start, he was roughed up by the Braves. And tonight, the Astros did the same. Lee suffered in the second inning from a series of tough hits and bad breaks, giving up 4 runs while throwing 42 pitches. He then gave up another 2 in the third, leaving the game after that.
It didn't help Lee or the Phillies' bullpen that the offense didn't show up against Wandy Rodriguez. But this is becoming a recurring theme for the past few weeks.
Let's hope the Phillies can break out of their years-long slump against the Astros for the next three games in this series. The Phililes are 11-21 in their last 32 games against the Astros. Ugh.
