The Phillies asked themselves the same question most fans asked late Monday night. But after getting throttled in two games last week in Cleveland and looking bad again in two losses over the weekend against Miami at Citizens Bank Park, the Phillies hit well, pitched well and played good defense in Monday's 6-2 victory over the defending World Series champion Giants at AT&T Park. Domonic Brown hit a solo home run and Delmon Young and Jimmy Rollins each added sacrifice flies as the Phillies began a seven-game trip with a nice win after losing Roy Halladay to the disabled list earlier in the day. His sixth homer of the season, on a 3-2 changeup in the second inning, snapped a 21-inning scoreless stretch by Lee against San Francisco.
Cliff Lee shut down the Giants once again with eight strong innings, Michael Young hit a two-run double among his three hits and the Philadelphia Phillies stopped San Francisco's season-best six-game winning streak with a 6-2 victory Monday night.
