Cliff Deals Again, Phils Cruise 7-1

Jun 11, 2011, 7:33 PM EDT

Cliff Lee goes eight strong innings to pick up his sixth win, and Chase Utley knocks in 4 RBIs as the Phillies defeat the Chicago Cubs 7-1.

Here’s your line: eight innings, one run, four hits, two walks, seven strikeouts, and one win. With the victory, Lee gets back above .500 for the first time since April 25, and he retakes the Major League lead in strikeouts by one over teammate Roy Halladay. Not bad.

Meanwhile, Chase Utley had one of his best days at the plate this season, with four RBIs on two hits, including two-run shot in the eighth inning. The Phils go for the series win tomorrow.
