Lee dazzles with changeup in 10-inning outing
SAN DIEGO -- Phillies pitcher Cliff Lee's changeup was particularly impressive in his 10 scoreless innings against the Giants on Wednesday night.

Lee threw 24 changeups, 21 for strikes, as he became the first Phillies pitcher to throw 10 shutout innings since Steve Carlton did it in 1981 against the Expos. Lee struck out seven, walked none and allowed seven hits.

The Giants won, 1-0, in 11 innings.

"He had unbelievable stuff," catcher Carlos Ruiz said. "It was good. Every pitch was working good. The biggest thing was the changeup.

"He was very aggressive early. It's too bad we didn't score a run for him. It happens sometimes."
