In Cliff We Trust

Phillies Giants Baseball

This afternoon Charlie Manuel announced that his starter for Game 1 of the NLDS will be lefty Cliff Lee.

The start will be the first postseason action for the veteran Lee, who will face off against Colorado’s hard throwing right hander Ubaldo Jimenez, at 2:37 tomorrow afternoon in South Philly.

The decision to start Lee keeps Cole Hamels on his normal rest heading into Thursday’s game 2 and enables Manuel to possibly use J.A. Happ out of the pen in the first two games should his services be needed.
