The Phillies crowd wasn’t happy to see Cliff Lee pulled one out away from his first complete game since 2011, but it was job well done for the left-hander, who moved to 2-0 after holding the Mets to three runs — two earned — in 8 2/3 innings.
Lee last year didn’t get his first win until his 14th start on July 4. His second win came in his 19th start on July 31.
Michael Young had the biggest day for the Philadelphia offense, missing a cycle by a double. Ryan Howard and Young hit back-to-back homers in the third, while John Mayberry Jr. followed with a third homer just two batters later.
Starter Dillon Gee gave up all of the homers. He surrendered seven runs in three innings for the Mets.
With Lee’s removal, there remains just one complete game in the majors this season, that a shutout thrown by the Dodgers’ Clayton Kershaw against the Giants on Opening Day.
