Cliff Lee was fantastic on Thursday night in Atlanta helping the Phillies come home to play in front of the Philadelphia faithful for the first time in 2013 with a much-desired win under their belt. And boy that one win certainly helps the morale of the entire city, Charlie Manuel and his boys included.
Jim Salisbury writing in his recap of last night's 2-0 Phillies victory:
The Phils headed home late Thursday night at 1-2.
That sounds a lot better than 0-3 -- especially during introductions before Friday’s home opener.
“Without a doubt,” manager Charlie Manuel said with a laugh. “We’ve got hope now.”
The Phillies got their first 'W.'
Cliff Lee was a beast.
And the Phillies play in South Philly today.
