CLEARWATER, Fla. -- It is only Spring Training, but Phillies left-hander Cliff Lee sounded a little frustrated Thursday at Bright House Field.
He allowed seven hits, five runs (three earned runs), one walk and two home runs in four innings in a 7-6 loss to the Toronto Blue Jays. He struck out four. He retired eight of the 11 batters he faced in the first three innings before struggling in the fourth.
"I got behind and had to catch more of the plate and they got hits," Lee said. "That's what happens. Whatever. I feel good. Physically, I feel good."
Lee, who threw 82 pitches, said he has two more starts before pitching against the Houston Astros on April 2 at Citizens Bank Park.
