On this, the anniversary of America’s birth, the Gods of Fate and Justice and the American Way bestowed upon one of the great sons of their soil the gift of run support.

The gift of home runs and outward displays of Metsitude, guiding the benevolent hands of Chase Utley and the one they call Chooch to clout notable home runs, compelling these warriors to commit acts of greatness in the name of Clifton Phifer Lee.

Uncle Sam waved his stars and bars and ensured that, on the greatest and most American day of the year, Cliff Lee would get a win.

8.0 innings, 7 hits, 2 runs, 1 walk, 9 strikeouts. ONE WIN.

Congrats, Cliff. Today, you are America.

  2. Tonight: Fireworks in his honour!

  3. For once Lee decided to really bring the intensity and will his team to victory. He has been awful offensively this year and it’s about time he lead them to score some runs.

  4. Goddamn it. Chris Young can’t pitch into the seventh. The bullpen would’ve handed it to the Phils either way.

    Good for Cliff, I guess.

  5. Good for Cliff – been a tough year for him with an ERA over 4.00 and no wins. Nice to see him give his team a chance to get the W.

  6. *single tear*
