Lee’s scoreless innings streak ends at 34
Cliff Lee’s scoreless innings streak has ended at 34 after the
Philadelphia Phillies’ left-hander gave up a run against the
Toronto Blue Jays on Sunday.
Lee, who came in having pitched four consecutive shutouts and
going 5-0 with an 0.21 ERA in June, kept the Blue Jays off the
board for the first two innings.
His streak ended when Rajai Davis tripled to lead off the third
and scored on John McDonald’s grounder to shortstop.
Lee’s streak is the second longest in Phillies history. Grover
Cleveland Alexander threw 41 consecutive shutout innings in
