Interesting trivia from Lee's shutout
SAN FRANCISCO -- Phillies left-hander Cliff Lee threw his fifth shutout of the season in Thursday's 3-0 victory over San Francisco at AT&T Park.

Here are some shutout facts from Thursday:

• It was the Phillies' 15th shutout of the season. The last time the Phillies had 15 shutouts through 111 games was 1951. The Phillies' 15 shutouts tie five teams for the second-most in the big leagues through 111 games over the past 20 seasons: 1992 Pirates, 2002 Red Sox, 2007 Padres, 2009 Giants and 2010 Mets. Only the 1992 Braves (19 shutouts) had more.

• Lee and Roy Halladay each have 10 shutouts since the beginning of the 2008 season, which leads baseball.

• Steve Carlton is the only Phillies pitcher in the live-ball era to have more than five shutouts through 111 games. He had seven in 1972. Lee's five shutouts through 111 games tie him with Robin Roberts (1951 and '53), Curt Simmons ('52), Karl Dews ('52), Chris Short ('65) and Woodie Fryman ('68) for second since '20.

• Lee's five shutouts through 111 games are the most in the big leagues since 1992, when David Cone and Tom Glavine each had five.
