Lee on the Mound for Series Finale

For the full gameday, visit Phillies Nation.

Philadelphia Phillies (71-50) at New York Mets (57-67)
Cliff Lee (11-9, 2.72 ERA) vs. Bobby Parnell (3-5, 4.74 ERA)

In the final game of a four game stint, the Phillies will look to take three out of four from the New York Mets. Thus far, the games have been close and exciting between these two rivals.

Cliff Lee has been outstanding since joining the Phillies. He is 4-0 with a 0.82 ERA and opponents are batting .161 against him. With Lee on the mound, the Phillies expect him to go deep into the game and get a win.

Lee will be opposed by Bobby Parnell, who is making his fourth start since moving from the bullpen. Parnell is coming off a poor start in which he allowed nine runs in three innings versus the Braves. Against the Phillies, Parnell is 0-2 and gave up a game-winning home run to Chase Utley.

The Mets will likely be without Jeff Francouer, who was taken to the hospital for an MRI on his thumb. After going 3-for-5 and completing an unbelievable, game-ending unassisted triple play, Eric Bruntlett will get another start. Today, he will give Jimmy Rollins a rest at shortstop.

Today's lineup: Victorino (CF)/ Werth (RF)/ Utley (2B)/ Howard (1B)/ Ibanez (LF)/ Feliz (3B)/ Bruntlett (SS)/ Bako (C)/ Lee (P).

Call of the Day: Del Unser wins the game.

"Swing and a well hit ball to deep center field! Richards back!
It is outta here! Home run! Del Unser, has won the ballgame! Veterans
Stadium is going wild! His third consecutive pinch hit home run!
