The offense mustered an unimpressive four hits against Doug Fister and company tonight. Michael Young, Jimmy Rollins, Darin Ruf and Carlos Ruiz each collected a hit apiece. The Phillies lone run came courtesy of a third inning RBI single from Young, as they held their first lead since Saturday. It was short-lived, as the Tigers took the lead for the good in the fifth.
When it rains it pours apparently, because on top of their sixth consecutive loss, it has been announced that Cliff Lee has been scratched from tomorrows start with a stiff neck. Raul Valdes will now be matching up against Max Scherzer. This could get very ugly.
