Need we say more?
The southpaw put on a complete demolition of the Marlins by striking out 14 and knocking in four runs in the Phillies’ 12-2 victory on Monday.
Lee had three hits including a triple.
For the Mini-Mart haters, here’s a fun fact:
In 35 at-bats this season, Michael Martinez has three RBIs. In four at-bats Monday night, Lee surpassed that total.
His three hits and four RBIs are career highs and his triple is a career first.
According to ESPN Stats & Info, Lee is the first Phillies pitcher to have a three-hit, four-RBI game since Phil Collins in 1930. Lee is also the first Phillies pitcher to strike out at least 14 and not walk a batter since Curt Schilling in 1997.
Oh, Chase Utley, Darin Ruf, Cesar Hernandez and Jimmy Rollins also had multi-hit games.
But Cliff Lee is all that mattered Monday.
Roy Halladay (3-4, 7.28) takes on Marlins lefty Brian Flynn (0-1, 10.13) on Tuesday.
