Six earned runs and he didn't get out of the fifth.
That's a stat line that Cliff Lee has never seen in the postseason.
All season long, commentators have talked at length about the lack of offense the Giants have. But for some reason, they can hit elite pitching. Roy Halladay was coming off a no-hitter and the Giants roughed him up for a Game 1 win in the NLCS.
Now the Giants struck with key hits and a two-run-rallly in the fifth to knock out Lee, arguably the most dominating postseason pitcher.
For all the talk, the Giants have players who know how to hit. Pat Burrell had an off game but Buster Posey had a clutch base hit for an RBI and Freddy Sanchez, the former batting champion, was in form.
The Giants that went up against Lee were aggressive and had no problem taking outside pitches to right field.
And 11 runs in one game? Obviously, the Giants can hit at least once in a blue moon.
