National League Game Summary - Philadelphia at San Francisco



(Monday, May 6th)

Final Score: Philadelphia 6, San Francisco 2

San Francisco, CA (Sports Network) - Cliff Lee tossed eight innings of two-run ball in the Philadelphia Phillies' 6-2 win over the San Francisco Giants in the opener of a three-game set.

Lee (3-2) fanned six and surrendered just five hits for Philadelphia, which was coming off an embarrassing 14-2 loss against the lowly Miami Marlins.

"We underperformed this first month, and it's time for us to turn it on. Tonight was a good start in that direction," Lee said.

Michael Young slapped two doubles among his three hits, drove in two and scored a run in the triumph.

Hunter Pence smacked a solo homer and a double among his three hits for the Giants, who had their six-game winning streak snapped.

"Pence had a great night, but it was a rough night for the rest of the group," Giants manager Bruce Bochy said.

Madison Bumgarner (3-1) allowed five runs on eight hits and two walks over six innings to pick up his first loss of the year.

The Phillies jumped out to a 5-1 lead after plaing three runs in the second and two more in the fifth.

With the bases loaded and two away in the second, Young ripped a two-run, one- hop double into the right field corner before Chase Utley scampered home on a wild pitch.

San Francisco got a run back in the home half on Pence's solo shot into the left-field seats, but Delmon Young's sacrifice fly and Domonic Brown's solo homer over the wall in right made it a four-run spread after five frames.

Pence doubled to begin the eighth and scored on Jimmy Rollins' throwing error on Francisco Peguero's infield single to cut the gap to 5-2.

Philly, though, added insurance in the ninth on Rollins' sacrifice fly and Jonathan Papelbon secured the win with a 1-2-3 bottom half.

Game Notes

The Phillies were 1-for-9 with runners in scoring position and left seven men on base ... Brown's homer was his sixth of the year ... Pence cracked his sixth round-tripper of the season.
