Lee Fires Six Hitter As Phillies Shutout Struggling Cardinals

Last updated on Thursday, June 23, 2011

(ST. LOUIS, MO) - Cliff Lee fired a complete-game six-hitter as the Philadelphia Phillies blanked the St. Louis Cardinals 4-0.

Jimmy Rollins put the Phillies on top when he hit a solo home run off St. Louis starter Kyle Lohse in the fourth inning.

Ryan Howard came up two batters later and hammered an opposite-field two-run shot off Lohse to put Philadelphia up 3-0.

That was more than enough for Lee, who walked one and struck out three to record his second-straight shutout and improve to 8-5 on the season.

Lohse took the loss to drop to 7-4.
