Phils win Game 1, 6-1

A couple of amazing stats about Cliff Lee's performance. First, there have been six all-time postseason complete games where the pitcher had 10+ strikeouts and 0 walks. Cliff Lee has now pitched two of them. Second, Cliff Lee is the second winning starting pitcher in a World Series to have 10+ strikeouts and 0 walks in a game. The first was Deacon Philippe in the first World Series game ever in 1903.

For today's haikus -- we have my post and then a guest haiku from my sister, who is raising her one-year-old right: as a Phillies fan.

We all knew the Yankees bullpen was garbage, except for Rivera.

Two consecutive 10 K, 0 BB starts, I might add.
