Off To A Flying Start

Cliff Lee was a monster.

His pitching performance - a complete game, allowing seven hits and one earned run in garbage time - has given the Phillies a 1-rock lead in the 2009 National League Division Series and a 5-1 win.  My only complaint was that TBS had too many Rudy Martzke Memorial Dreaded Glitches - audio problems, satellite feed problems, sun spots, wind aided problems, and an unlistenable interview with Lee (Damn you, Gary Matthews!) - messed this telecast up.

The Phillies posted a three spot in the fifth and added a pair of runs in the sixth to seal the deal, and Jayson Werth making the Rockies pay for the sin of committing the last out at third on a double play to end the third inning caused the record crowd at The Vault, a/k/a Citizens Bank Park of 46,000-plus to roar with towels a-twirling.

Tomorrow (10/8), Cole Hamels will try to extend the lead to 2-love.
