Michael Young's eight total bases on Tuesday night against the Mets were the most he's had since Aug. 31, 2010, in a game that also happened to be started by Cliff Lee. Young homered and tripled in the same game for the first time since 2009 and just the second time since 2005.
Young showed off some underrated speed on the hustle triple in the third inning. The fun of early-season stats -- Young's OPS jumped from .699 to .976 in one night.
• Lee, meanwhile ... wow. For a major-league record 19th straight start, he went longer than six innings and walked 0 or 1 batters. Never been done before. Greg Maddux and Christy Mathewson held the previous record, at 14 starts.
Over his last 10 starts dating back to Aug. 26 last season, Lee has a 1.36 ERA in 73 innings, with 70 strikeouts and three walks. The ridiculous control has been there, and yet he's still avoided hits. The opposition has batted .219 over that span.
• Chase Utley stole two more bases last night, making the Phillies a perfect 10-for-10. They obviously lead the majors in stolen base percentage, but they also lead in total steals. And Utley is now 124-for-138 in his career for an 89.8% success rate -- the best in the history of baseball among players with at least 100 steals.
The Phillies have led the majors in stolen base percentage every year since 2007.
• Ben Revere is 1-for-7 with a walk and two strikeouts in the first inning this season. It's a shame he hasn't been able to get on with regularity, because Jimmy Rollins is 4-for-8 in his first at-bat of games.
Revere hit .355 in the first inning last year and .369 in his first at-bat of the game.
