DUNEDIN, Fl.(RSEN)–Lefty Cliff Lee went six innings to get the win allowing just two runs on four hits as the Philadelphia Phillies beat the Toronto Blue Jays 5-4 before a soldout crowd Tuesday afternoon in Dunedin.
     Lee hurled 90-pitches 56 for strikes while walking two and striking out four.  He did allow a lead off triple to Rajel Davis in the first and a solo homer to Juan Rivera in the third counting for two of the four hits he allowed.  The other two were a double by Jose Bautista and a single by JP Arencibia to complete the cycle against Lee.
     Raul Ibanez had the big hit in the first off Toronto starter and loser Ricky Romero as his three-run homer to deep left center field put the Phillies ahead early.
     Toronto play a night game Wednesday at the Yankees in Tampa Brandon Morrow scheduled to pitch in a minor league game at the team’s training faculity.
